Rotary Short Term Exchange presents opportunities for students to advance their knowledge and world understanding by allowing them to briefly live in a different country.  The Rotary STEP (short term exchange program) is a family to family summer exchange program. After a match is established with an international family, the two students will spend one month at each other's home in the coming summer, with the exact dates determined by the two families.
This program is open to students, age 15-18, living in Rotary District 6250 (western and southern Wisconsin; southeast Minnesota) of good character who desire to live abroad and host in return.  Candidates should be adaptable, mature and want to experience life in other countries and cultures. Children of Rotarians and non-Rotarians are equally eligible.
