Every year thousands of young people explore new horizons with Rotary Youth Exchange programmes.
District 1260 ran an inbound STEP (Short Term Exchange Programme) camp in July 2022, but our District has no immediate plans to organise a Youth Exchange this Rotary year. If anyone would like to volunteer to co-ordinate a Youth Exchange in 2024, I would be happy to provide more details.
Thousands of people, aged between 15 and 25, take part every year and come home with incredible stories of positive experiences which have given them greater self-confidence, an understanding of other cultures and a new language. Yout Exchanges be short-term or camp-based experiences:
Young people can try this taster experience during the school holidays. 15 to 17-year-olds will be paired up with an exchange partner and stay with each other for around three weeks, learning about one another’s country and way of life.
