This program allows students to experience another culture for a shorter period of time. Students in this program visit another country for roughly three to six weeks and are sponsored by their local Rotary Club.
The purpose of this program is to strive towards better understanding of their cultures. By living in another country, we hope students will be able to see the different challenges that other cultures face, their customs, and their way of life. We want to provide an environment conducive to both personal, and interpersonal growth. Living in another country also allows students to learn a language in an easier fashion than a normal course. Being fully immersed in another culture, students learn how to interact in another language and pick up what they really need to carry a conversation and communicate effectively.
Short Term programs run during the summer. Two families are paired, and they host each other’s students. During this time, students cannot have jobs or other obligations that would interfere. The coordination and cost of travel is the responsibility of the families.
