Rotarys are searching for exchange students



Published: Fri, August 8, 2014 @ 4:57 a.m.

Staff report

Local Rotary clubs are searching for outgoing high school students to travel overseas to more than 40 countries next year as part of the Rotary Internationsl Youth Exchange Program.

Eligible students should be 15 to 17 years old, of good character and reputation, and not older than 181/2 at time of departure. They should have above average academic ability and a pleasant personality.

A preliminary application with a local interview is required before the Rotary District 7280 interviews in November. Country preferences will be considered and placements will be made in January.

Each student’s share of expenses is approximately $4,800. The program is for one year, and the hosting Rotary club will provide housing with host families, food, schooling and a monthly allowance.

For a packet of outbound information, contact Jeff Simmons at 724-875-1136 or email jssim89167@yahoo.com. The packet also contains information on a three to six-week summer experience, which matches participants with an international student, who will travel here to stay with students’ families.
