ROTARY YOUTH EXCHANGE is an organization that provides thousands of young individuals in the world with the opportunity to meet new people from other countries and to experience their cultures through the providing exchange programs they offer. Typically, almost 10,000 high school students participate in their programs each year. Their programs are usually open to students of all races, gender, religion, and socioeconomic status to enroll in. They include high school abroad, a gap year abroad, and a summer abroad program.

The company spokesperson said, “Learning and managing finances is a life skill that students can use at any stage. Typically, students learn how to manage their finances while they stay with host families in the youth exchange programs. As it is often a new country, host families usually take care of their needs and guide them about the locals and their vulture whenever necessary.”

When it comes to gap year travel programs in the US, ROTARY YOUTH EXCHANGE has exciting gap year exchange programs that students should consider enrolling in. Being an immersion into the culture of another country, students are usually hosted by two to three families during their stay in the exchange country so that they may be able to gain a greater understanding of the culture of the people in that country. As a result, students get to become global citizens whose perspective of people in countries around the world will be changed forever. Other than that, they get to return home with a greater sense of the world and a deeper understanding of themselves and their culture. They will also get to make lifelong friends and build memories that will be with them forever. So, though the challenges may be significant, in this case, to understand the culture of other people, so are the benefits.

The company spokesperson added, “A gap year is also an excellent time for students to learn life skills as it dissociates them from academics and improves their career orientation. Kids get to explore their weaknesses and strengths in this period. And other than how to manage the available finance, the program also offers an excellent time for them to learn skills such as the language being spoken in the current country. Those who love traveling, for instance, may use this time to begin their own.”

Typically, students eligible for the ROTARY YOUTH EXCHANGE gap year programs abroad program are those who are currently a senior in high school and will graduate next spring as long as they will not exceed 19 years of age by the time of departure after graduation. However, during their stay in the exchange country, they will be required to attend high school as this type of exchange program requires student visas. The good thing is that no academic credits will be needed for graduation from their high school back home, and this is one of the factors that make this program to be less stressful for students as compared to others. So, if this sounds like it is right for one, they should consider contacting the organization to get more insight about how to apply in their area.
