2016-2017 Youth Exchange Students
Our 2016-17 exchange students will be representing Tennessee and the USA in 8 different countries: Czech Republic, France, Brazil, Japan, Austria, Thailand, and Germany.
2015-2016 Youth Exchange Students
Rotary Youth Exchange students spend up to a year living with host families and attending school in a different country
These exchanges plant the seeds for a lifetime of international understanding. Exchange students are ambassadors of the Rotary clubs that sponsor them and of their country. Rotary clubs and communities benefit by having students from another country in the community for an extended period of time. Rotary is committed to creating and maintaining the safest possible environment for all participants in its programs, including Youth Exchange.
