Press Release (ePRNews.com) - USA - Nov 04, 2019 - An offshoot of Rotary International, ROTARY YOUTH EXCHANGE is ensuring an upward growth trajectory for teens and young adults. The organization provides exchanges that expose participants to new cultures and new languages. Plus, they develop life skills and leadership attributes essential for success in any personal and professional undertaking. The participants also build lasting friendships with young, like-minded people from different geographies, cultures, and ethnicities. As the participant’s purview broadens, he/she evolves into a global citizen. ROTARY YOUTH EXCHANGE makes every effort to ensure safe, comfortable and pleasurable exchanges. The participant’s tour preferences in the host country are also supported.
The spokesperson at ROTARY YOUTH EXCHANGE recently stated, “Travel develops personalities. Humans tend to learn more when they are outside of their comfort zones – its common sense. When people receive this exposure early in their lives, they are likely to grow into responsible, tolerant and wise adults. With that in perspective, Rotary Youth Exchange offers exchange programs in over 100 counties and 5 continents. We roll out High School Abroad and Gap Year Abroad programs, each carefully curated and well-executed. Our programs are sponsored by the Rotary International, and hence, always easy on the pocket.”
ROTARY YOUTH EXCHANGE has set simple and transparent eligibility criteria. Applicants need to be 15-19 years old and leaders in their schools and communities. Having an open, receptive mind and inclination to assimilate with different people and cultures is also appreciated. Candidates should visit the local Rotary Club for any inquiry on the available opportunities and the application process. Plus, the organization offers lucrative exchange student hosting avenues to families globally. Herein, the families are carefully selected and trained to host an international exchange student. The family will be providing the student room, food and board, and involve him/her in family, community, and cultural activities for decent remunerations.
On the Gap Year Abroad exchanges, the spokesperson further stated, “Gap Year Abroad program is meant to help participants add value to their gap year. The program is ideal for current high school students wanting to study abroad. Graduates from any U.S. or Canadian high school can also apply. However, the number of opportunities is limited for the graduates. The Gap Year Abroad is a long-term program where the participant will be staying with carefully selected and trained families for the entire duration. He/she will be studying in the local school in the host country. As we take care of everything, the student can breathe easy.”
Typical of ROTARY YOUTH EXCHANGE programs, the Gap Year Programs Abroad is also sponsored by Rotary International. The student’s room and board are provided, as well as the school fees. The student has to make out of pocket expenses for Round-trip airfare, travel insurance, travel documents, such as passports and visas, and costs of any additional travel or tours. The participant also gets a 24/7/365 worldwide emergency assistance for the program duration.
