Youth Exchange Chair 2021-22

Jonna Grant
West Oklahoma City Rotary
At the Rotary International November Board meeting it was decided to suspend both short-term and long-term Rotary Youth Exchange through 30 June 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While we have no doubt this was a very difficult decision to be made by the board, we know that they will do what is needed to protect our youth.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Board continues to significantly limit or suspend all Rotary activities that require travel or in-person meetings. Although we were all hopeful that the situation globally would have stabilized enough to allow districts to safely resume exchanges, there is simply still too much uncertainty. We must do everything we can to protect our students, families, or volunteers from the risks associated with this dangerous disease.

Rotary Youth Exchange is one of Rotary's oldest international programs and is a key component of Rotary's New Generations and Peace initiatives.  
Scholarship recipients spend one full school year attending high school in another country.  The friendships, perspectives, and languages gained in that school year are critical to each student's individual growth and to our global capacity for communication, tolerance and understanding.

Rotary District 5750 will have up to three Rotary Youth Exchange Scholarships available for the 2021-2022 School Year.  Please see the 2021-22 page in the left menu for additional information.
