Long-Term Program - Steps To Success:
You have embarked upon a journey and undertaken a commitment that will be life changing. The year long program provides a special opportunity for you to discover yourself in a new culture. You will learn a new language, different ways of doing things, and be exposed to a new school system. You will meet new life-long friends, be able to call new parents 'mom' or 'dad' and mean it in a very special way. Your hosting Rotarians can show you many ways to be of service to others, and can expose you to various career paths. You are a special person because you have the unique opportunity to have a year of discernment to determine why you are on this earth and what you will do with your life--a time to realize that you are here to make a difference.
In order for you to enter your host country and stay as part of Rotary Youth Exchange, your stay must be legally documented by your host country government. The various tabs under Long-Term Exchange will explain the process and vital information pertaining to your travels. Specific details will be provided in your Document Pack once your host country has finalized and released information regarding proper documentation to It's Your World - Travel! Then with the support of Rotary both here and in your host country, we will determine your departure date and destination airport. Once you have been legally documented by your host country government and your ticket has been finalized, we will provide you with a list of "to do's", so you don't forget anything. But, as with many things in life, there is a set order to making this happen in an efficient manner. Be sure to thoroughly read all the tabs in the Long Term Exchange to thoroughly familiarize yourself with the specifics.
