Press Release (ePRNews.com) - USA - Jan 28, 2020 - Rotary Youth Exchange programs and scholarships change the life of a student for the better. Being safe, amazing, and affordable, both students and their parents all over the globe trust these programs. Rotary International sponsors them in over 100 countries and students who have leadership qualities and are popular in their schools and communities can be a part of them. Such students who belong to the age group 15-19 years can join Rotary Youth Exchange programs soon after graduating from high school.
Answering a query related to Rotary Youth Exchange in an interview, the spokesperson stated, “Foreign student exchange programs are fantastic, as students can reap a plethora of benefits from his/her exchange experience. While being a part of a student foreign exchange program, students get to immerse themselves in other cultures and learn about different beliefs prevalent there. They meet new students not only belonging to the host country but exchange students from all over the world and develop lifelong friendships with them. They learn a new language and the importance of adapting to a new way of life that leverages their overall development.”
Rotary Youth Exchange programs are created to develop the next generation of leaders. They help young and open-minded individuals to expand their education while learning the value of service. When the exchange program ends, students return to their countries and homes with a better understanding of their culture, the world around, and as highly confident individuals. Students are supposed to seek detailed information about the exchange programs they wish to be a part of, the application, and the selection process. The application and selection process will vary from a region to another and is highly selective.
The spokesperson added, “Our selection process starts almost a year before students finally leave for their exchange trip. Therefore, students are required to contact their nearest Rotary Club or visit our website for detailed information at the earliest. They need to know everything in advance if they want to make the most of their exchange experience. We have put up useful information regarding our programs, such as inclusions and exclusions, on our website. Additionally, we consistently update the journals of students already living their dream of being an exchange student on our website. Students who want to participate can go through these journals to find out what it feels like being a foreign exchange student.”
Rotary Youth Exchange programs are of two types – short-term and long-term exchanges. Short-term exchanges last several days to several weeks, take place when school is not in session, and do not include an academic program. The most common types of Rotary Youth Exchange short-term exchanges include homestays, family-to-family tours, and international youth camps. The long-term foreign exchange programs for high school students, on the other hand, are meant to last a full academic year.
