MIDDLEBURY — High school students who have completed at least one year of French and who want to experience life in a French speaking household are encouraged to apply for the Rotary Club of Middlebury’s free youth exchange program with the Rotary Club of Sherbrooke, Quebec.
“This is a great opportunity for students studying French to meet others their own age,” said club President Ben Fuller. “Our first exchange was last summer. It’s close to home and still culturally different.”
Students will be matched with a high school student in Sherbrooke, stay in his/her home, and then host the Quebec student in their Addison County home. The dates of this year’s exchange are July 16-Aug. 13.
Rotary will organize the exchanges and provide transportation. Other than hosting another student, there is no cost to students.
Rotary values international exchanges and wants to make this opportunity available to all eligible high school students in Addison County. Those who are homeschooled are invited to apply.
