Lowell Youth Exchange Host Families Sought

The Lowell Rotary Club announced they will participate in the International Youth Exchange Program and is seeking host families.  The most powerful force in the promotion of international understanding and peace is exposure to different cultures.  This is a true exchange program as the club will host an inbound student for the 2012-2013 Lowell high school year, and sponsor an outbound student for the 2013-2014 school year. 

The Rotary Youth Exchange program is distinctive because it is operated completely by volunteers around the world.  Each district arranges its own exchanges with other districts. This exchange is open to students ages 15-19 and usually lasts 10-12 months. The student normally lives with more than one family in the host country, breaking the year up into 4-6 months with each host family, and is required to attend school.  Host families are screened, interviewed, selected, and supported by their local club.
