Objectives of the Program
To enable Students to:
- advance their education by studying at a Secondary School for a year. In an environment different from their own and in courses not normally available in them In schools In their home country.
- broaden their outlook by living with and meeting people of different cultures, creeds and backgrounds and by having to cope with day-to-day problems In an environment completely different from their home experience. The Exchange permits them to see the problems of people In other countries from the perspective of those people.
- act as Ambassadors for their own country by addressing Rotary Clubs, community organisations and youth groups In their host country and by Imparting as much knowledge as they can of their own country and its current issues.
- study and observe all facets of life and culture in the country where they are hosted and on their return to their home country, to discuss their experiences and knowledge gained with Rotary Clubs, schools, youth groups and community organisations.
