Press Release (ePRNews.com) - US - Apr 06, 2020 - ROTARY YOUTH EXCHANGE sponsors various student exchange programs in more than 100 nations across the world. The sponsor conducts these programs via Rotary Clubs in these countries. While ROTARY YOUTH EXCHANGE offers short-term summer exchanges that vary in length from several days to several weeks, it also conducts long-term programs like high school abroad and gap year abroad programs. These youth programs ensure to build peace one young person at a time. Students learn new languages and discover new cultures via these programs.
The spokesperson of ROTARY YOUTH EXCHANGE, in the latest interview, shared, “We sponsor candidates who are 15 to 19 years old. Our exchange students make use of our programs to unlock their true potential to develop lifelong leadership skills, learn about foreign people and cultures, build lasting friendships with young people from around the world, and most importantly, become a global citizen. Our long-term study abroad programs last a full academic year, and students attend local schools and live with multiple host families during this period.”
Under ROTARY YOUTH EXCHANGE’s high school study abroad summer programs, the experience of the candidates starts the year before going to study abroad, as they go through the application, selection and preparation process. These immersion programs help students become bicultural and bilingual. These programs also change their perspective of the world forever. To pursue the study abroad programs, ROTARY YOUTH EXCHANGE pays all their school fees, as well as provides students with boards and rooms. Students are only responsible for their airfare, additional tours, and travel insurance and documents.
Additionally, the spokesperson stated, “We prefer students who are leaders in their schools and communities. There are also scholarships available for deserving students. Our Study Abroad Scholarship includes hosting by a foreign Rotary Club and the primary tuition and placement in a school approved by that Rotary Club. As part of our scholarship, we also offer homestay accommodation that includes meals with one’s host family. Apart from that, students get a monthly stipend from the host Rotary Club.”
ROTARY YOUTH EXCHANGE provides scholarships that cover the pre-departure and some in-country orientations, as well as 24-hour worldwide emergency assistance throughout the program. However, there are terms to its scholarships about which the candidates may learn before they apply for the particular program. The sponsor easily supplies all program information and requirements to the interested candidates. Under its study abroad programs, ROTARY YOUTH EXCHANGE also gives a chance to gap year students who have graduated from a U.S. or Canadian high school. While there are limited opportunities for gap year students, these can truly put meaning into their gap year travel.
