High school French students invited to apply for Quebec exchange program

MIDDLEBURY — This summer the Rotary Club of Middlebury is offering a free short-term youth exchange program with the Rotary Club of Sherbrooke, Quebec. 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.
“This is a great opportunity for students studying French to meet others their own age,” said club president Tom Telling. “Our first exchange was two summers ago. It’s close to home and still culturally different.”
Currently, there is a slot for one girl to participate in the exchange, but other openings may arise over the coming weeks. The selected student will be matched with a 15-year-old high school student in Sherbrooke, stay in her home, and then host the Quebec student in her Addison County home. The dates are July 15-August 12, 2018.
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.
For further information and to apply, email David Clark or Dick Moore at [email protected]
