The Rotary Youth Exchange Program is badly affected by the worldwide pandemic.
Many countries are under strict conditions and international flights are limited.
When the situation improves, Rotary Youth Exchange will continue.
ROTARY YOUTH EXCHANGE
....an opportunity of a lifetime
....to follow a dream
The Rotary Youth Exchange Program enables youth aged 15-18 years to study for up to 12 months in an overseas country.
The video below is from Rotary District 6690 USA, but illustrates aspects of the Rotary Youth Exchange Program.
We have 5 rebounders on our YEP9640 committee?
And you can tell from the colour of our blazers that it’s been quite a few years since some of us went on exchange! πŸ’™πŸ’š#blueblazersforever
All 5 of us are now Rotarians in Rotary District 9640 evidence of how the seeds planted many years ago by rotary clubs investing in youth can have a long term benefit for Rotary International.
Left to right we have:
Guy Murphy, outbounder to Canada 2000, member of Gold Coast Passport Rotary Club 🍁
Kathryn Koch, outbounder to South Africa 1994, member of Rotary Burleigh Heads πŸ¦’πŸ¦“
Zoe Ross, outbounder to Japan 1997, charter president of Rotary Club of Coomera River 🍣
Mindi Devine, outbounder to Canada 2008, member of Rotary Club of Warwick Sunrise 🌲
John Campbell, outbounder to Denmark 1992, member of Rotary Burleigh Heads ... and a 26 x host parent!!!
If there are other former exchange students out there who would like to get involved in YEP or Rotary again, we’d love you hear from you! Send us a DM and make sure you’re connected to us at ROTEX/Rebounders 9640.
 ....even if you weren't sponsored by 9640 but now reside on our district (like Kath!)
