Our Goal

Each year, the Rotary International Youth Exchange Program sends approximately 3,000 young people all over the world for a year-long educational exchange, and many more for short-term exchanges.  This program promotes peace and understanding by getting to know people from other countries and cultures, and at the same time helps the young people learn about the world and about themselves.
