Rotary Short-Term Exchange Program (STEP)

The "short-term" program is for 3-5 weeks of living in another country, where you will be hosted by a Rotary District and Rotary Club, and live with a family in the nation you are visiting. All short-term exchanges are reciprocal. Each student hosts the same student who hosted him/her. Learn more about hosting your reciprocal short term inbound Exchangee.
