Rotary Virtual Youth Exchange
Rotary District 9640 Australia is now offering 15-17 year old high school students and their families in our district the opportunity to be paired with a student and their family abroad for a virtual Rotary Youth Exchange Program for between 8-12 weeks.
Students participating in the program will have the opportunity to get an insight into the life and culture of a student living in another country from their comfort and safety of their own home, and to share insights from their own home, school and community life in Australia. Activities covered will include getting to know you, families, food, culture, music, school, language introducing your home town, and virtual tours and more!
The virtual exchange program is open to students who:
  • Want to develop their leadership skills and are keen to learn about another culture and language while sharing their own.
  • Want to be an ambassador for Australia.
  • Are aged 15 to 17 years (must be 15 and not older than 17 by 1 July 2021).
  • Are willing to commit to between 1-3 video contacts/activities with their matched student per week for between 8-12 weeks (full commitment is dependent on country selected), with a minimum of 80% participation to be awarded your completion certificate.
At present we are offering exchanges to countries including:
  • Italy
  • India
  • Brasil
  • France
  • and more!
