Rotary Youth Exchange’s mission is to bring the world together one student at a time. We do so by sponsoring and hosting exchange students in accordance with the guiding principles of Rotary International. In coordination with DGE Rich Turnbull and the Youth Exchange Committee, we are asking you now to help Connect the World by agreeing to host an Inbound Rotary Youth Exchange student for the 2020-2021 academic school year.
There is a direct correlation between the number of inbound students we accept and the number of outbound scholarship students we can send. By receiving your pledge to host for the next academic year, allows us to know how many scholarships we can offer this November to our District 6970 students wanting to serve as ambassadors for our district, our clubs and our communities around the world with the mission to better the world through peace and understanding. The monetary value of these outbound exchange scholarships is calculated to be worth at least $24,000 USD. We know the true value in terms of life experience is priceless; so, we’re asking for participation from as many clubs as possible to ensure we provide plenty of these opportunities to the youth of District 6970.
Hosting club commitments are due no later than Saturday, September 28nd. If you have questions regarding what is involved with hosting an exchange student, completing the forms or want to arrange for a RYE presentation to your club, please contact our District RYE Chair Cassie Moyers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
