As an international service club, each year, Rotary helps several thousand students world wide to experience another culture through youth exchange.Every year, in early October, the local Youth Exchange committees host an information night for interested students.

The long term exchange runs for an academic year 10 – 12 months and the students that apply, and are accepted in the fall, would go out on exchange the following summer for their next school year. Students must be between 15-18.5 years of age as of August 1st of their exchange year.

The program aims to promote peace and inter-country understanding, while providing a challenging and enriching experience for selected student participants.
