On July 16, Old Mission Rotary was proud to host a Rotary Youth Exchange delegation from New York State, Rotary District 7120.  
Rotary Youth Exchange (RYE) is a Rotary International student exchange program for students in secondary school.  Since 1929, Rotary International has sent young people around the globe to experience new cultures.  Currently, about 9,000 students are sponsored by Rotary clubs every year.  Typically, students are sent to another country for a year-long stay, generally living with multiple host families during the year and being expected to perform daily tasks within the household as well as attend school in the host country.
