Rotary Youth Exchange

Rotary Youth Exchange Australia provides an opportunity of a lifetime for young Australians aged between 15 & 18 to study abroad.

During their exchange, students learn a lot about themselves, their host country and their values. They will also grow considerably in self-confidence, tolerance and self-reliance.
