Work is underway to reboot the Rotary Youth Exchange.  After a pause due to the covid pandemic, Rotary International has given the go-ahead to begin selection and orientation of students in anticipation of a July 1, 2022 program start date.
The Rotary Youth Exchange program is open to high school students between the ages of 15 and 18 on departure. It does not matter whether your parents are members of a Rotary Club - the program is open to children of Rotarians and non-Rotarians alike. Exchange student candidates must be outgoing, self-confident, friendly, adaptable, and adventurous, willing to learn a foreign language, with above average grades in school.
For more information, check out the Rotary District 7040 Youth Exchange website.  You can also contact the Rotary Club of Ottawa’s New Generations Chair André Bourdon.
Act quickly, as candidates must apply and be selected by December 8, 2021.
