Hamilton Rotary Exchange Program
    Host Families Needed for Youth Exchange Student Arriving late August for the 2019-2020 Hamilton High School Academic Year

    The Hamilton Rotary Club is seeking interested families or couples to share their homes, open their hearts and embrace an amazing experience during a three to four-month time frame for the Rotary’s next inbound exchange student arriving this August from another country. The Hamilton Rotary Youth Exchange program hosts a high school student from another country each school year and is currently seeking two – three families or couples who will each host this inbound student over the 2019-2020 academic school year. Host families learn about another culture and country, experience America through the eyes of someone else, make new friends, and create lifelong memories. A host family r couple owelcomes the exchange student into their family as the young boy or girl attends high school and after school activities, volunteers at Rotary events, and socializes with new friends as they become immersed in the Hamilton community. The inbound students also meet other international exchange students within our Rotary 7150 District who are participating in this program. Host families do not need to be Rotarians, can be a young family or a couple with or without children; they need to be caring, open-minded people who wish to include this special person into their home for a brief time. These students learn what it is like to live in a small community, gaining a full and rich experience of American culture.

    The Hamilton Rotary Club will be notified of who our next inbound student (name, age, gender, and country) by the end of March, 2019. The on-line application process takes several weeks so host families must express their interest soon to allow for the process time.

    Acadia Klepeis, a graduating senior of Hamilton Class 2019, will be the next Hamilton Rotary Club’s outbound student for the 2019-2020 school year. Currently Ella Skinner is embracing every moment during her outbound experience in Mexico; having a blast attending her new school, making friends, learning about family culture and traveling around Mexico.

    Broaden your families’ horizons and bring the world closer by making a small connection at home. Host families always have a support team consisting of Hamilton Rotary and Rotary District 7150 members. If you are interested in hosting during the 2019-2020 school year or wish to be considered for hosting in future years, please contact Hamilton Rotary Youth Exchange.
