We are excited to announce that our Rotary Youth Exchange student for the 2022-23 school (and Rotary) year has been assigned! Camille from Belgium is a 16-year-old who will be attending Dunwoody High School. Her first language is French, and she has been studying English for five years. Camille will arrive in August and will be with host families and our club until May 2023. Dottie Toney will be Camille's counselor (liaison between Camille, the school, and our club).
We encourage everyone to meet Camille and invite her to fun
Atlanta events (think: Atlanta United games, festivals, etc.). If you
will be driving or spending time with Camille you must be a certified volunteer
for Rotary Youth Exchange. The certification process involves a background
check and two short training modules from the Department of State. Please
contact Deb Cameron (firstname.lastname@example.org)
with any questions or to start the certification process.
We also are still recruiting for a second host family for
Camille - from about mid-November to early February. The only requirement
for the family is that they must live in the Dunwoody High School attendance
area. The family also will be required to obtain background checks and
If you know of a high school student, ages 14-18, who

year, please direct them to Deb or to ryeflorida.com
