Short Term Youth Exchange

Rotary Burlington Lakeshore would like to sponsor students for an exchange program. Applications must be submitted by May 15.

Be part of a new short-term exchange program within Canada! Rotary Youth Exchange started in 1927. It is the world’s largest exchange program with up to 10,000 students on exchange. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, international youth exchange is post-poned this year. Our goal with this program is to provide Canadian youth with opportunities to experience a very different part of Canada and to grow a broader sense of community and understanding. Students from Burlington will have the opportunity to exchange homes and communities with students from the Moncton area in New Brunswick. Volunteer placements will be provided as well as trips in the local area.

The Experience Canada Scholarship Program is open to students ages 15.5 to 17 (not yet 18 on
Sept. 1, 2022). Students with a strong work ethic, involved in the community with communication and leadership skills. Be willing to try new things.

Canada and the privileges and responsibilities of citizenship.
