Explore new cultures and discover diverse perspectives by participating in a Friendship Exchange, Rotary’s international exchange program for Rotary members and their families. Not only will you help advance peace and international understanding, but your friendship can lead to future service projects.

Choose from the following types of exchange programs:

  • Visitor: Individual Rotary members and their families spend up to a week in a Rotary member’s home abroad.
  • Team: Several Rotary members or couples visit communities in the host area for up to one month.
  • Univocational: Rotary members who share the same profession see how their job is done in another country.
  • Volunteer/service: Rotary members take part in a service activity while visiting their host club.
