The Rotary Club of Edina participates in the New Generations Exchange program through Rotary International and Rotary District 5950. The International Service Committee is in charge of facilitating this program for our club.
New Generations exchanges usually last from a few weeks to three months, making this a suitable option for recent secondary school graduates, young professionals, and Rotaractors. These exchanges may be arranged for individuals or groups and can involve homestays, tours or camps. Exchanges often can also include a vocational element, and some districts offer specialized internships. New Generations exchanges provide the opportunity to learn about a different culture while fostering goodwill and understanding.
If you are interested in learning more about this program—either for a potential exchange participant or hosting the participants for the vocational element, please contact International Service Committee Director Eduardo Padilla, or committee member Shelly Loberg.
