Rotary Seeks Area Young Adults for Expense-Paid Cultural Exchange to Colombia

The Rotary Clubs of our area are seeking four outstanding young adults to visit Colombia for a month-long, expense-paid cultural exchange trip.  Sponsored by the Rotary Foundation, the Group Study Exchange team will travel throughout this part of the world from May 19th to June 15, 2012.

As ambassadors of Rotary, this group of young adults will visit our partner district in Colombia to share their personal, cultural and professional experiences with those they meet in that host country.

The purpose of a group study exchange is to promote international understanding and goodwill through person-to-person contact.  While abroad, team members stay in Rotarians’ homes and have the opportunity to meet their professional counterparts.  They will also give presentations to Rotary Clubs and other groups about our home country and local area.
