Welcome to Rotary District 7150 Youth Exchange!
Let us tell you something about who we are. Rotary District 7150 is comprised of approximately 1, 200 Rotarians in Central New York State who participate in Rotary through 43 Clubs.
Rotary Youth Exchange is a distinct program within Rotary District 7150, which seeks to promote world peace and understanding through a series of exchanges where we send our students to foreign countries to immerse themselves in a different language and culture, and where we, in turn, host students from those same countries so that they may learn our language and culture.
We adhere to high standards set by Rotary International and the United States of America's Department of State. All of our volunteers go through a background check and must take--and pass--a series of comprehensive tutorials and examinations in working with youth.
Our program has been recognized with awards from the North American Youth Exchange Network (NAYEN) for the past several years. Still, we are constantly striving to improve the quality of our program so that our youth may receive the best possible exchange.
To those of you visiting our website from another country, welcome! You will find our District, in the heart of Upstate New York, to be full of friendly people, fun activities, unique landscapes and challenging weather patterns! We look forward to meeting you and working with you to make your exchange a positive and enriching experience.
Enjoy browsing our website, and please let us know how we can help you.
