The Rotary Youth Exchange (RYE) is seeking hosting families from within the membership of our club, reports RYE chair Mark Harbison.
As a Rotary exchange student host family you assume parental responsibility for a young ambassador from another country. You agree to provide shelter and sustenance, guidance and counsel, and love and support to the child of strangers who may live thousands of miles from you.
The students have their own insurance and pocket money; you offer room and board. Host families are not paid a stipend.
Thanks to all who attended Rotary Leadership Institute this past weekend. Special thanks to RLI Chair Charles Allen and his team for their dedication, as well as for graduating another class of Rotary All Stars!
