Academic Year and Summer Exchange Programs

Did you know that every year more than 8,000 students from around the globe participate in Rotary’s International Exchange Program.  How about you?

The Academic Year Program is for interested High School students or recent high school graduates taking a gap year.  These students spend an academic year attending high school in a foreign country and living with host families and having a year filled with adventure.
