Short-Term Youth Exchange

Summer Youth Exchange Program            

   * Application Deadline - February 1, 2022 | APPLY NOW 

Rotary’s STEP is a very affordable family to family summer exchange that offers a unique opportunity for students to expand their knowledge of the world and create life-long friendships! Spend a month overseas living with a student and their family, then return home with them to continue your experience hosting in your home for one month.
After a two- year hiatus due to the COVID pandemic, STEP is back! Any students who applied for the 2020-21 exchange year and still qualify, need to reapply, but they will be able to skip the interview process. 
STEP is open to students aged 15-18 who live in Rotary District 6250 (western and southern Wisconsin; southeast Minnesota). Participants must be of good character, be adaptable, mature and want to experience life in other countries and cultures. Children of Rotarians and non-Rotarians are equally eligible.
