Rotary Club of Cessnock has participated for many years in this very successful and worthwhile project. This program provides a life changing experience for a young person in Year 10,11 or 12.
More than 8,000 young people will have the opportunity of a lifetime - a chance to live in another country and see the world from a new perspective through Rotary Youth Exchange.    This could change your life in many ways.   
As a Rotary Youth Exchange student, you'll spend a year living with host families and attending school in a country other than your own. You'll learn a new way of living, maybe even a new language, and a great deal about yourself. 
As you're learning, you'll also be teaching the people you meet about your country, your culture, and your ideas.
You'll be a young ambassador, helping to bring the world closer together and making some good friends in the process.
If you're ready for the challenge and the rewards of living in another country as an exchange student, then you're ready to discover new worlds through the Rotary Youth Exchange program.
