Youth Exchange

“The most powerful force in the promotion of international understanding and peace is exposure to different cultures.” Rotary Youth Exchange (RYE) provides an opportunity for high school students ages 16-18 to meet people from other lands and to experience their cultures by studying abroad for one year.

Each year, thousands of students are involved in the RYE to countries around the world.

Cedar Falls Rotarians have hosted Rotary Exchange students from Brazil and Slovakia.  The club has also sponsored outbound exchange students.
