Rotary Youth Exchange (YEP)
The Rotary Youth Exchange Program (YEP) provides secondary school students aged 15 to 18 (in years 9, 10 or 11), sponsored by a Rotary Club, with the opportunity to live and study abroad as a full time student with host families for one academic year. Students will have the opportunity to:
- develop self-confidence
- form life-long friendships and international networks
- learn a new language
- develop understanding of different cultures
- act as ambassador of Rotary, promoting international goodwill, peace and understanding
- explore their host country and culture
- participate in Rotary related events, including attending Club Meetings and Rotary District events such as the District Conference
The Rotary Club of Monash is a regular supporter of Youth Exchange, whether it be hosting students or as sponsoring Club.
