Both Fond du Lac Rotary Clubs are looking for students who have an interest in spending a year abroad during the 2014-15 school year. Last year a student spent a year in South Africa, next summer a Fond du Lac student will leave for a year in Sweden.

Each year over 8,000 high school students, worldwide, travel to one of over 44 foreign countries for a year on a Rotary Youth Exchange program; sponsored by their local Rotary Clubs. Students spend about 11 months immersed in the language and culture of another nation. They typically live with two or three host families during the year. This expands students understanding of local life styles as they make new friends. Students return with greater self-confidence, and a global perspective on life.

You are eligible to apply if you have a good character so you will be a good ambassador abroad for America. You also need a sense of adventure, be eager to travel and meet new people. If you are in the upper-half of your class and will be between 16-18 years old during the summer of 2014 you should check it out.

Contact us now if you are interested in receiving an application. Each step of the way the Rotary Clubs and District leaders will guide both the student and their parents through the preparation process. You can check out costs and programs on www.csrye.org.

For more info. contact Joyce Mann at 979-2008 or inmrn1@gmail.com; and Bill Shaw at 251-0074 or shawzee@aol.com.
