Why We're Different
A number of things sets the Rotary Youth Exchange Program apart from others, but the most important ones are:
- a network of Rotarians in Australia and abroad who will support you. Rotarians are all volunteers who do not get paid for their time. Rotarians are passionate about the programs that Rotary offer and want to make the world a better place. Rotary International is a non-religious and non-political organisation.
- several host families. We see this as a great thing. If you speak to former Rotary Youth Exchange students, they will tell you that learning to live with new families is part of the learning experience, and generally it's great fun as well!
- the cost of the program, because of the number of volunteers involved in the program - we can keep the cost much lower.
