Two Exchange Programs to Choose From

Long Term Exchange

This exchange lasts for about one school year, from August 2018 up to July 2019. As a student, you'll learn a new langage, explore the culture, meet some new friends and go to school in a foriegn country.

Short Term Exchange

This exchange will take place in the summer of 2018, with a student from your city living with another student and family in another country for about a month. You'll then return home with the student from that country coming with you to spend a month with your family in your home. The total length of the exchange program will be about two months.

Rotary District 5060 extends from Prosser and Yakima in the south to Clearwater and Revelstoke in the north. Most high schools have a Rotary Exchange Program, so check with your local high school school. This is the best exchange program in the world and only a few students get to attend. Find out more about it and then apply.
