Rotary Youth Exchange programs are open to students ages 15 - 18. We have made a change to our age requirement beginning with the 2019-2020 year.  To qualify, applicants should be above-average students who have demonstrated leadership in their community. Candidates should also possess qualities such as flexibility and a willingness to try new things that will enable them to fully experience life in another country and become excellent cultural ambassadors. All applicants must be sponsored by a local Rotary club and complete a written application and in person interview.


Students are initially interviewed by members of a sponsoring local Rotary club. This is an information session and interview (in late September or early October) that involves the student and parents. Students are usually selected by October 1st. If accepted, the student moves to the next level of District interviews hosted in Kamloops, B.C. during the first weekend of December.
