On behalf of the approximately 1100 Rotarians in Rotary District 7150, thank you for visiting the Rotary District 7150 Youth Exchange website. We hope you will find it interesting an 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 2021-2022, after dealing with the challenge of the worldwide pandemic with COVID-19, we will not be doing exchanges. However, 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 in 2022-2023 as health department regulations begin to allow travel.
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.

I want to be a Rotary Volunteer!
