Rotary Youth Exchange is a country-to-country exchange of high-school age young people, between the ages of 16 to 18½ years old at the time of arrival in the hosting country, for a cultural and educational experience for both the student and those serving as hosts. 

Rotary's student exchange offers two programs to choose from, a long-term program which is a 10 or 11 month program and a short- term program which is a 3 to 6 week program.
