Short-Term Youth Exchange

Summer Youth Exchange Program            

   * Application Deadline - February 1, 2020

      Mandatory Orientation - April 26, 2020 (1-4pm, Wisc Dells)

Rotary Short Term Exchange presents opportunities for students to advance their knowledge and world understanding by allowing them to briefly live in a different country.  The Rotary STEP (short term exchange program) is a family to family summer exchange program. After a match is established with an international family, the two students will spend one month at each other's home in the coming summer, with the exact dates determined by the two families.
This program is open to students, age 15-18, living in Rotary District 6250 (western and southern Wisconsin; southeast Minnesota) of good character who desire to live abroad and host in return.  Candidates should be adaptable, mature and want to experience life in other countries and cultures. Children of Rotarians and non-Rotarians are equally eligible. 

We are no longer accepting new applicants for summer 2020 exchanges. Applicants previously approved to submit the full application will be accepted if all details are received by the Feb 1 deadline. The application process for summer 2021 will open in autumn 2020 - check back then.
