Study in a foreign country or host a student from a foreign country

Monday, October 15, 2018

The Shoreline Rotary Club is accepting preliminary applications through October 17th from high school students in Shoreline who would like to spend a year studying abroad or would like to participate in a short-term exchange during the summer as part of the Rotary Youth Exchange Program.

Students with good academic and leadership skills are encouraged to apply for a year-long youth exchange abroad, beginning in August of 2019. Short-term exchanges (four weeks abroad, four weeks hosting in Shoreline) are also available during the summer of 2019. Rotary will screen and arrange for host families and sponsoring Rotary clubs in the host country, and also arrange enrollment in an appropriate school in the host country for participants in the year-long program.

Rotary is an international organization made of up volunteers involved in community service. It emphasizes high ethical standards and works toward peace and understanding in the world.

Rotary operates the largest youth exchange program in the world, with more than 80 countries and 8,000 students participating each year. The Youth Exchange Program is low cost, and offers youth the experience of learning another culture and language, making life-long friendships abroad, and seeing another part of the world. In recent years, Rotary has sponsored students from Seattle to live in Switzerland, Italy, Brazil, Japan, France, Thailand, Finland, Ecuador, Sweden, Spain, Chile, Turkey, Taiwan and Germany.

We are also seeking families in Shoreline who would like the experience of sharing their home with a student from abroad for four to six months.

If you would like more information or an application, please email Scott Saunders, Youth Exchange Officer for the Shoreline Rotary Club, at or visit our website at Rotary District 5030 Youth Exchange.
