Rotary Youth Exchange


This international program builds peace one young person at a time. Exchanges for students 15 to 19 years old are sponsored by Rotary clubs in more than 100 countries, including our club here in Benicia.


What are the benefits?  The students develop lifelong leadership skills, learn a new language and culture, build lasting friendships with young people from around the world, and become a global citizen. The exchanges last a full academic year, and students attend local school and live with multiple host families. Room and board are provided, as well as any school fees.


Candidates are 15-19 years old and are leaders in their schools and communities.  If you’re interested in learning more about being an exchange student, contact our Youth Services Chairperson.
