On behalf of the approximately 1,200 Rotarians in Rotary District 7150, thank you for visiting the Rotary District 7150 Youth Exchange website. We hope you will find it interesting and informative!
We would particularly like to extend a warm welcome to those visitors interested in becoming an exchange student! We typically offer the opportunity for high school students to study abroad. This experience includes learning a different language and assimilating into a new culture. It is often termed a unique, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Life-long friendships are made and a new appreciation and understanding of people of different countries evolves.
To those of you visiting our website from another country, welcome! You will find our District, in the heart of Upstate New York, USA, to be full of friendly people, fun activities, unique landscapes and challenging weather patterns!
Unfortunately, during this Rotary year 2020-21, we are facing the challenge of a worldwide pandemic with COVID-19. We look forward to working with you to ensure that exchanges are a positive and enriching experience in the future. A special thanks to our Host Families for your generosity in giving a home to students from around the globe, and welcoming them into your family. We wish to continue this tradition when health department regulations allow.
We aim to make a valuable, positive contribution to goodwill, peace and understanding among nations and people. Enjoy browsing our website, and please let us know how we can help you.
Phyllis Danks, Chair
Cheryl Matt, 2020-21 District 7150 Governor
I want to be a Rotary Volunteer!
