Great, the first step is to contact Trisha Kerkstra, Rotary District 6110 Rotary Youth Exchange Inbound Coordinator.

Trisha will put you in touch with your local Rotary Club who will take it from there, as in our program, the Rotary Club is responsible for the student exchange—you are one of three families that the student will live with throughout the year.

If you already are in touch with your local Club, great. The Club will have you complete a Volunteer Application and provide two References. Once that is done and a background check is run, you will then be instructed to complete a Host Family Application. Once this is done, a local Rotarian will conduct an at-home interview and inspection. They will discuss the program with you and your family and take pictures of your home. Once this process is complete, you will notified that you are officially a host family and will receive Host Family Orientation prior to the student moving into your home.
