It should be noted that many of these costs would occur during the year even if the Student were not involved in a Rotary 12 month Youth Exchange.

Therefore, they should be viewed in that context, rather than as additional costs. Such as compulsory school uniforms, Clothing and tours
Rotary Youth Exchange provides an opportunity of a lifetime for young Australians currently studying Year 9 to 12 to study abroad for the following year.
They’ll spend up to 12 months living and studying in a foreign country, learning a lot about themselves and the culture of their adopted host families.
It’s an amazing, life-changing experience you can give your kids that they will never regret.
