Applications are being accepted through February 1, 2019, for the upcoming Summer High School Exchange program. The Rotary Short Term Exchange Program, known as STEP, is a Family-to-Family exchange for students ages 15 to 18. This is a great program for students not interested in our one-year exchange program.
Students submit their application indicating their top 3 country choices and a match is established with an international family.  The U.S. student spends 3-5 weeks abroad with their host family. During the same summer, the U.S. student hosts his/her brother/sister in the U.S.  Exact dates are determined by the two families.  There is no academic component of this exchange. Some of the countries available in the Rotary STEP: Brazil, Czech Republic, Ecuador, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.
