Long-Term Student Exchange Program
Posted by Joan Gagnon on Feb 22, 2017
The Foxboro Rotary Club recently had guest speakers Steve and Jill Albright of Rhode Island, who did a presentation on Long-Term Youth Exchange. The Foxboro Rotary has participated in the past in this program and is considering starting it again in the near future. This program usually lasts for one year, during which time the student attends school and lives with families in a host country. To gain a greater understanding of the culture, he or she will live with at least two, preferable three, host families during their stay. To ensure the students' safety, the host Rotary club conscientiously screens and selects all host families. In turn, our local club reciprocates by hosting a student here for a year.
