Press Release (ePRNews.com) - USA - Jan 28, 2020 - Student exchange programs are fantastic, which is why students all over the world prefer them. Students reap many rewards from an exchange experience. Take, for instance, the benefits of immersing in different cultures and adapting to a new way of life. Students get to learn about different beliefs and accomplishments of people in other countries. They get to make lifelong friends not only within the host country but also with exchange students belonging to several other countries. Developed for providing students with all this and more, Rotary Youth Exchange programs are popular world over.
Answering a query about Rotary Youth Exchange, the spokesperson stated, “Sponsored by Rotary International in more than 100 countries across the globe, Rotary Youth Exchange programs virtually add meaning to student exchange programs. To develop the next generation of leaders, our programs help young, open-minded individuals expand their education, build leadership skills, and learn the value of service. Students through these exchange programs learn the value of stepping out of their comfort zone and facing challenges for their overall development. At the end of the program, students return home with a greater sense of the world and a better understanding of their culture and themselves.”
ROTARY YOUTH EXCHANGE programs are affordable and safe. They are ideal for students who belong to the age group of 15-19 years and who demonstrate leadership qualities. The same would enable them to become excellent cultural ambassadors for their country and the Rotary Club that supports them. The application process varies and the program is highly selective. Students are supposed to apply early, as the application process can begin almost a year before departure. Interested candidates either can refer to the Rotary Youth Exchange website or can seek help from their local Rotary Club.
The spokesperson added, “To suit varying requirements and student preferences, we offer two types of exchange programs – short-term and long-term exchanges. Short-term exchanges are meant to 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 our short-term exchanges include homestays, family-to-family tours, and international youth camps, which students can customize to meet their expectations and interests. For example, they can include trips to specific places they wish to visit in a foreign country. Long-term exchanges, on the other hand, have been designed to last a full academic year.”
As a part of the long-term Rotary Youth Exchange programs, students live with multiple host families and attend local schools. Students can join these programs immediately after graduation from high school. Students looking for gap year programs abroad can consider Rotary Youth Exchange for a meaningful gap year travel.
