As we start the new 2018 rotary year we have already started looking towards the 2019/20 Youth Exchange Year.  

We have re-branded the year YE program as the District 5790 Youth Exchange Scholarship Program.  The scholarship brand is being used because what we are able to offer through the YE program is; free room and board, free tuition at a school in a host country and a monthly stipend while in that country.  The monetary value of this alone is approximately $15,000.  If we add in the value of living abroad for up to a year, learning a new language and developing resume building life skills then the value is incalculable!  

We owe it to the students of our district to share this opportunity with them. 
If your club sponsors an Interact Club at your local High School I would love the opportunity to come and speak about the Youth Exchange Scholarship Program.  
The sooner in the year we can get this information to the students the better to determine if they are candidates.  We will conduct district interviews in November and December and students need time to think about their options. 

I look forward to hearing from the Interact coordinator at your club!
