For over 75 years, students and host families have broadened their horizons through Rotary Youth Exchange.

Each year in our district, over 30 inbound students participate in exchanges and in return 30 students from our district spend a year abroad.

By living with host families and attending school in the communities in which they live, students experience the culture and ways of the country they will call home for an extended period of time.

At the same time, host families will gain a new perspective on the cultural norms of the country from which their exchange student hails. Both student and host family will come out of the experience with a new appreciation for how others live and quite possibly, a new friend abroad.

District 7090 is part of the North American Youth Exchange Network (NAYEN). If you know someone who lives outside our district that is interested in this study abroad opportunity, please have them go to and fill out the contact us form to find a sponsoring Rotary district near them.
