Youth Exchange Students from Abroad (Aired on August 5 and 6, 2017)

RadioRotary’s co-hosts Jonah Triebwasser and Sarah O’Connell call Youth Exchange Rotary’s “crown jewel.” District 7210 Youth Exchange Coordinator Nan Greenwood (District 7210 E-Club) joins the co-hosts as Youth Exchange students from Slovakia, France, Brazil, Japan, Taiwan, and Italy discuss their
experiences as part of the Rotary Youth Exchange program, where “inbound” students from around the world spend nine months attending school in the United States (meanwhile “outbound” students make similar visits abroad). Each student lives with three different families during the school year so that there is a real taste of what American life is like. The visit is watched over by host Rotary clubs, for these students LaGrange Sunrise, Monticello, Port Jervis, Red Hook, Greenville, and Fishkill.
