Week 8. For week beginning August 24
Each year over 8,000 high school students participate in the Rotary Youth Exchange (RYE) program worldwide, learning a new language and experiencing a new culture, through the efforts of Rotary volunteers around the globe. The program’s primary mission is to work towards peace and understanding in the world.
The Youth Exchange Committee is currently seeking host families and club sponsorships for inbound youth exchange students during the 2016-2017 school year. The number of inbound students that we agree to host determines the number of students from our district that we send abroad. Please consider hosting or sponsoring a youth exchange student. Deadline to make your intentions known is September 19th.
If you have any questions regarding what is involved with hosting an exchange student, completing the forms or arranging for a RYE presentations to your club, please contact District RYE Chair Jeff Hart at firstname.lastname@example.org.
