Student Exchange takes a high school student from here and sends them to another country for up to a year. At the same time, a student from another country is brought here.
Some of the countries we exchange with include Peru, Argentina, Brazil, Italy, Mexico, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Turkey, India and the list goes on.
Students partaking in one of these exchanges are changed for life. Not only do these students learn a new language, but the learn about the cultures and traditions of these different counties.
One of the mantras they learn is “It’s not wrong or right, it’s just different”
The end goal of the program is to promote peace, understanding and friendship around the world. When you get to know and understand other people, you make them your friends.
Many claim that this is the very best of all the Rotary programs.
