Rotary exchange program offered to French speakers
MIDDLEBURY — High school students who have completed a minimum of 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 new youth exchange program with the Rotary Club of Sherbrooke, Quebec.
“This is going to be a great opportunity for students studying French to meet others their own age,” said club president Geoff Conrad. “For years we have sponsored students to go abroad. Now we have an exchange that is 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 this July.
Rotary will organize the exchanges and provide transportation. Other than hosting another student, there is NO cost to students. Up to four students will be selected this summer. If there is interest, the number of students may be increased in 2017.
Rotary values international exchanges and wants to make this opportunity available to all eligible high school students in Addison County.
