Types of exchange

The Rotary Youth Exchange Long-Term Programme is a 12 month secondary education exchange programme. The program is ideal for students who are intent on becoming fluent in another language, learning a new culture on an intimate basis with 3-4 different host families (the number is dependent on the country numerous Rotary Clubs may only provide a single host family) and being an ambassador for their country. This program is for students who are self motivated, friendly and outgoing, caring and smart. Students may live with a number of families but they are not guests - they are expected to fit into the family's normal daily routine. This includes doing basic chores requested by the family, participating in all family events, and generally becoming the closest representation of a biological child as is possible.

The Rotary Youth Exchange Short-Term Programme is a 6 to 8 week family to family exchange, for 15 to 18 year olds, whereby you host a student either in July/August (for students coming from the Northern Hemisphere i.e. Europe) or December/January (Southern Hemisphere i.e. South America). All students from Southern Africa depart November/December of any given year.
