Youth Exchange: School Year and Summer (Aired on October 14 & 15,
2017)

Youth exchange (YEX) has long been a principal way that Rotary International promotes peach through friendship and cultural understanding. Rhinebeck Rotarian Mike Frazier is the coordinator for District 7210 of a new way for Rotary to support international youth exchanges, known as summer youth exchange or more formally as short-term youth exchange. In this program a family from one country exchanges for a few weeks or a month with a family from the other country. This is different from the regular school-year exchange in which the student who is incoming from another country or outgoing to one stays with three different host families; there is no reciprocal arrangement. The school-year exchange includes learning the language of the country visited, which is not a part of the short-term exchange. In both programs, a host Rotary Club must sponsor the exchange and the applicants are vetted both by the locals clubs and YEX officers from the District.

United Nations Show 3 (aired on 3-4-17 & 3-5-17)

2017 Rotary Day at the UN #3 (Aired on March 3 and 4, 2017)

RadioRotary presents several interviews from the 2016 Rotary United Nations
Day, this time centering on the activities of Rotary District 7210, the home of RadioRotary. Lou Turpin (Rhinebeck Rotary), the 2016-17 District Governor, starts the program off, emphasizing his view that the essence of Rotary can be summed up as “Do Good. Have Fun.” His interview is followed by chats with students from Red Hook Interact and Rhinebeck Interact clubs, along with Linda Greenblatt, a Rotarian advisor to the Red Hook Club. Interact Clubs in high schools are sponsored by, but run independently from, a local Rotary Club; their mission is the same as Mr. Turpin proposes, doing good and having fun. Another set of interviews brings Millbrook Rotarian Kim Sweck , who supervises Rotary Youth Exchange for Millbrook, and two of the students who have come from Italy and Brazil to spend a school year in the United States. Rotary Youth Exchange works both ways—clubs in the United States often sponsor a local high school student who will live with families in other nations.

Talking Shelterbox (Aired on Feb 18 and 19)

Talking about ShelterBox (Aired on February 18 and 19. 2017

Jim Damiani, (Nanuet – West Nyack Rotary) 2017-18 Governor of Rotary District 7210, visits the RadioRotary studio to talk to Jonah Triebwasser and Sarah O’Connell about ShelterBox, a major initiative for disaster relief that is affiliated with Rotary International.  Simply put, a ShelterBox is a tent and necessary supplies for up to ten people, all packed into a waterproof one-meter plastic cube. That is a good thing, but what makes ShelterBox effective in disaster relief are trained teams that can bring the ShelterBox cubes to the site of a disaster and teach locals how to use them. Because most cities and towns around the world have Rotary clubs, the ShelterBox teams have connections even in remote sites, such as the mountains of Nepal or smaller cities in Haiti, which enables the team to get the equipment to the right place faster than practically any other relief organization. Many Rotary clubs in District 7210 provide the $1,000 per box it takes to assemble a ShelterBox, often contributing more than one box a year, and then track “their boxes” to see where they have been deployed.
