Rotary Friendship Exchange

The Rotary Friendship Exchange program gives Rotarians (including spouse or significant other) the opportunity to host and visit Rotarians around the world. In addition to experiencing other cultures and making lasting friendships, an exchange provides a strong foundation for carrying out other international activities and service projects.

The primary goal of a Friendship Exchange is to build greater international understanding and goodwill. In addition, exchange participants can learn how their vocations are practiced in other parts of the world, observe new customs and cultures, and promote an appreciation of cultural diversity worldwide.

If you have ideas of districts you would like to visit, let your Friendship Exchange chairperson know.  These trips are a great way to see how people live in other countries.  It also helps us complete service projects, or plan new ones.  Any member can get such an exchange started, so if you have connections in another country, see if you can get an exchange rolling.  It is a great experience, available to all Rotarians and their friends.
