What is an exchange like?
 
Friendship Exchange participants travel as individuals, couples, families, or groups, and may include Rotary members and nonmembers. Prospective exchange teams communicate in advance to decide on the purpose, format, timing, logistics, and duration of each visit.
 
Exchanges offer unique chances for cultural immersion and interchange.  They might include opportunities for professionals, including young professionals, to build global understanding and boost vocational and leadership skills.  They can provide cultural experiences, vocational activities, fellowship, and much more.
