Spending time abroad as a Rotary Exchange Student is a great opportunity for students to experience a new culture, a new language, to be an ambassador for Rotary and Tasmania and to build lifelong friendships.

 

The YEP program is an International exchange for young people between the ages of 15 – 18. The exchange is for a 12 month period during which time the student is hosted by 3-4 families.
