Welcome to Rotary District 7360 Youth Exchange

As one of the many Rotary programs that provide educational opportunities for young persons, the Youth Exchange program has been a part of Rotary’s commitment to youth since 1938 and has the power to change the lives of those who participate.

District 7360 has long history of hosting and sending students around the world and boasts a well-seasoned district committee dedicated to making the exchange student year a memorable and successful life experience. These volunteers have been exchange students, have travelled internationally or are internationals themselves and most have hosted students in their home. They all share the same passion - to provide students and families with an opportunity to grow and benefit through a cross-cultural living and study experience.

Whether you are an inbound or outbound student, a host family or club youth exchange officer, we look forward to working with you to make this Rotary youth program a success in our communities. More information about Rotary and the Youth Exchange program.
