Coronado High School (CHS) Interact Club
Invite you to attend an
International Youth Exchange Meeting
The Experience of a Lifetime

Wednesday, October 30th at 6pm

Coronado Middle School, Granzer Hall 550 F Avenue

Would you like to travel or live abroad? Some 7,000 students annually participate in the Rotary International Youth Exchange Program, truly an affordable opportunity! As a Rotary Youth Exchange student, you will spend anywhere from a few weeks in the summer to a full academic year living with a host family overseas. You may learn a new language; you will experience life in another country, and a lot about yourself! Interested students and parents are invited to learn more about the 2020 exchange opportunities:

    1. Long-term exchanges – last for an academic year, during which the student lives with more than one host family and attends school in the host country.
    2. Short-term exchanges – live with a host family overseas who has a teen your age and then he/she will come to your home and stay with your family for a few weeks (or reverse order).
    3. International Summer Youth Camps – two to four weeks in length, bringing together students from many countries in an overseas location, and you will be the only American!

Student Selection: Rotary Club of Coronado is required to screen applicants (age 15-18; summer camps allow students up to the age of 25 and you may be up to 18 ½ to start the long-term exchange if you choose to do so after US high school graduation) interested through completion of a detailed application and interviews based on the following criteria: scholastic record and age, linguistic ability (not necessary for summer camps), involvement with incoming exchange students and community involvement as a potential cultural ambassador.

Please join us on Wednesday, October 30th at 6PM for Rotary Youth Exchange Information Night at Coronado Middle School, Granzer Hall.
