This program offers clubs a chance to promote world understanding and enrich the lives of qualified young people by sending selected high school age youth abroad to study and gain insight into a culture different from their own. As these young people become adults, many assume leadership roles in their communities and bring to these positions the benefits of their exchange experiences. As a result, Rotary's Youth Exchange program becomes a powerful force in the promotion of world understanding and peace.
