Do you know any High School students that would like to travel or live abroad? Some 7,000 students annually participate in the Rotary International Youth Exchange Program, truly an affordable opportunity! 
As a Rotary Youth Exchange student, you will spend anywhere from a few weeks in the summer to a full academic year living with host families overseas.  You may learn a new language; you will experience life in another country, and a lot about yourself!  Click "read more" for additional information.
Interested students and parents are invited to learn more about the 2023 exchange opportunities:    
  1. Long-term exchanges - last for an academic year, during which the student lives with more than one host family and attends school in the host country.
  2. Short-term exchanges - live with a host family overseas who has a teen your age and then he/she will come to your home and stay with your family for a few weeks (or reverse order).  
  3. International Summer Youth Camps - two to four weeks in length, bringing together students from many countries in an overseas location, and you will be the only American!  
Student Selection: The Rotary Club of Coronado is required to screen applicants (age 15-18; summer camps allow students up to the age of 25 and you may be up to 18 ½ to start the long-term exchange if you choose to do so after US high school graduation) interested through completion of a detailed application and interviews based on the following criteria: scholastic record and age, linguistic ability (not necessary for summer camps), involvement with incoming exchange students and community involvement as a potential cultural ambassador.  Exchanges will take place Summer 2023 for Short Term and Summer Camp.  Fall of 2023 for Long Term Exchange. 
Please join us on Tuesday, December 6 at 6:30 PM for Rotary Youth Exchange Information Night being held at Coronado High School in their Multi-Purpose Room.
