Rotary accepting applications for exchange program
EAGLE COUNTY ” The Vail Rotary Club and Edwards Rotary Club are now accepting applications for the Youth Exchange Program.
Rotary Youth Exchange students spend a year living with host families and attending school in one of more than 160 countries where Rotary clubs exist.
The organization is looking for candidates who possess qualities such as leadership, flexibility, a willingness to try new things and act as cultural ambassadors.
Although cultural exchange, not travel, is the main purpose of the program, students on these year-long exchanges usually have opportunities to travel with their host families and other Rotary Exchange Students on organized tours.
The program is open to high schools students who will between the ages of 16 and 18 when they leave the U.S. The exchange will take place during the 2007-2008 school year. All applicants must complete a written application and an oral interview.
The completed application should be returned by contacting Larry Agneberg no later than Sept. 27.
