Looking forward to seeing you there!

Rotary Youth Exchange
We're Back in Business and Need Your Help

Rotary Youth Exchange is shifting into gear to recruit outbound exchange students for the 2022-23 school year, and to recruit host families for our inbound student for that school year. Please direct any interested people to me, Deb Cameron, at dsc630@gmail.com. You can also direct people to the Rotary Youth Exchange website: ryese.org. (It helps if interested people know that we are in District 6900.)

We would love a few good volunteers from our club to help with recruiting and other activities related to Rotary Youth Exchange. You need to be an approved volunteer to interact with the inbound and outbound students – it is a U.S. State Department requirement. Becoming an approved volunteer involves a background check and a short state department training – all on line! Easy!!! Please let Deb know if you are willing to help with this amazing program.
