Youth exchange opportunities available
MIDDLEBURY — The Rotary Club of Middlebury is now accepting applications for its youth exchange programs for the 2019-2020 year.
Three options for high school students include a long-term exchange for the academic year, a short-term exchange for 6 weeks in the summer, and a 4-week exchange with a French speaking family in the Sherbrooke area.
“This is a terrific opportunity for the right high school student to experience another culture,” said Buzz Kernan, chair of the club’s Youth Exchange program. “Our club can help make this possible.”
Students interested in a long term exchange must be 15 years old by Aug. 1, 2018. Students go to a non-English speaking county and there are 36 countries participating in Rotary exchanges. Applications are due Dec. 7 for 2019-2020.
Applications for short-term exchanges, also to non-English speaking countries for 6 weeks in the summer, are due January 15.
The club is accepting applications for a 4-week exchange with a Sherbrooke host family for next summer. There are no fees or charges for this program.
