Brace yourself: Rotary's Youth Exchange program is the least expensive way to live & study abroad in the world.
Rotarians are volunteers. They don't get paid to coordinate exchanges. Also, our host families don't receive payment to have students live with them. As such, our exchange students pay a fraction of what they'd pay if they went through other exchange programs.
Long-term exchanges for students in our district are $5,500. The Long-term exchange flat fee covers the following:
The cost of Short-term and New Generations exchanges is the cost of a passport, plane tickets, visas, travel insurance, additional immunizations, spending money, gifts, pins for exchanging and personal items. All these costs are the responsibility of the student and their family. Rotary itself does not charge any fees for these exchanges.
