New Generations Service Exchange Program
In Tasmania we offer a New Generations Service Exchange (NGSE) program for students or young professionals between ages 18 and 30.
More Information from Dennis Dwyer (Longford) 0434 367 872
The Rotary New Generations Service Exchange program last year provided students and
young dementia care professionals aged 19‐30 the opportunity to study their vocation in
Rotary District 1870 Germany. Dementia care is a significant and growing health
issue worldwide and this program aims to support young adults in their
professional development in this field.

- One Allied Health Professional from same District attended our District Conference in March – April 2017 for five weeks.
Tasmanians in Thuringia

All are professionals in the Australian health system and experienced up to now, among other things, such as supervised and cared for people with dementia.

A Newspaper Report from Turkey
A message from Pinar regarding the photo which was part of an article in a Turkish newspaper.
“Today I obtained an information that I thought you would be interested in. I saw a news about the NGSE outbound team on a national newspaper. Here is the link;
It is in Turkish obviously but here is a little summary for you, explaining the news. It is talking about the trip of the outbound team to one of the places in north of Turkey. And the rotary meeting they attended. There was an interesting guest that was invited to the meeting actually. He was the son of a Canakkale war veteran. He talked about the memories his father has. And Damien also explained the importance of the war to your country, and how you appreciate Ataturk’s attitude towards Anzacs.
Also the inbound team made their presentations about Tasmania in all aspects and finished the presentation with a warm invitation to Tasmania:)
Finally, the governors explained how they were satisfied and happy to have Australian guests in our country, and want to continue having the exchange program. And continue with the theme about women next year.
When I saw the news, I thought it will be nice sharing it with you:)”
