Short-Term Youth Exchange

Application Deadline - February 1, 2024
Accepting Applications Starting September 1, 2023

Rotary’s Short-Term Exchange Program (STEP) is a very affordable family to family summer exchange that offers a unique opportunity for students to expand their knowledge of the world and create life-long friendships! Spend a month overseas living with a student and their family, then return home with them to continue your experience hosting in your home for one month.

STEP is open to students aged 15-18 who live in Rotary District 6250 (western and southern Wisconsin; southeast Minnesota). Participants must be of good character, be adaptable, mature, and want to experience life in other countries and cultures. Children of Rotarians and non-Rotarians are equally eligible.
