Welcome to Rotary District 5050 Youth Exchange
You can make a world of difference!  
Whether you are seeking to go on exchange, planning to host a student in your home, or desire to assist as a volunteer, you will help build world peace and understanding through your involvement.
District 5050’s Rotary clubs provide students with life changing experiences by both sponsoring local students who want to live and study overseas, and by hosting international students in our district . The joy and wonder experienced by students as they step out into the world is shared by their parents, their siblings, their host families, fellow students, new friends and by others.  The journey brings challenges and rewards unlike any other; the exhilaration and growth that the students experience is contagious...
Students will learn a new way of living, a great deal about themselves, and usually even a new language. They will also be an ambassador, teaching people they meet about their home country, culture, and ideas. They bring the world closer - and make some good friends in the process.
More than 8,000 young people each year have experiences like these through Rotary Youth Exchange.
Rotary Youth Exchange is the opportunity of a lifetime!  If you are interested in becoming a Rotary Youth Exchange student or are interested in hosting an exchange student in your home or becoming a volunteer, contact a Rotary Club in your community.  Check the Club Directory here.
