Host a student

Become a host family

Becoming a host family for a Rotary Youth Exchange student is a rewarding for both the student and for your family - and a great deal of fun too!

How long is the hosting period?

Rotary moves students through 2 to 4 families during their stay (but the students almost always remain in the same school during that time). This allows for students to get a diversity of experience and it also provides a wider support network for them. This means that host families will host anywhere from 10 to 25 weeks. The length of time is a point of discussion between the hosting Rotary club, the host families, and the student.

Rotary International has published A Guide For Host Families, which provides some great information for host families.
