Rotary Youth Exchanges, for students ages 15-19, are sponsored by Rotary clubs in more than 100 countries. They last a full academic year, and students attend local schools and live with multiple host families.

Students learn a new language, discover another culture, and truly become global citizens. The experience inspires young leaders to serve as catalysts for peace and social justice in their local communities and throughout the world, long after their exchanges end.

Our member Paul Higson is the District RYE Chairperson
