Youth Exchange


Each year, districts in Rotary International exchange approximately 7,000 students.  Rotary District-7120 exchanges students among 27 countries.  Penfield Rotary has both hosted and sent high school students since the 1970’s.   Most students spend their year abroad immediately following high school graduation.  They have been accepted in college.  This “gap” year enables them to learn another language, experience the culture of another country, serve as an ambassador of their own country and become more self-reliant.

The District 7120 brochure describes the program in greater detail:          YEBrochure2013-14 (1)
