Fancy a year of ad­ven­ture?

The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE -

Are you in­ter­ested in spend­ing a year over­seas, ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a new cul­ture, learn­ing a new lan­guage, see­ing new and ex­cit­ing things and mak­ing life­long friends from all over the world?

If you an­swered yes to any, or all of these ques­tions then Ro­tary Youth Ex­change is for you.

The Ro­tary Club of Corowa is look­ing for stu­dents from Corowa and sur­rounds to ap­ply for its 2019 youth ex­change pro­gram.

Ap­pli­cants should be in years, 9, 10, or 11, be aged 15 or over and not have turned 17 at the time of depar­ture, which will be early to mid-Jan­uary 2019.

Stu­dents should also be mak­ing sound aca­demic progress at school, have an in­ter­est in peo­ple and places, be out­go­ing and pre­pared to fit into new sit­u­a­tions.

Of course, it’s not all one big hol­i­day, stu­dents are ex­pected to at­tend school while over­seas, but this in it­self can be an ad­ven­ture, as they see and ex­pe­ri­ence how an­other coun­try ed­u­cates its peo­ple.

To sub­mit an ex­pres­sion of in­ter­est in the Ro­tary Youth Ex­change Pro­gram go to www.ryea.org.au/ap­ply-to­day.html

This web­site also has plenty of use­ful in­for­ma­tion about youth ex­change, al­ter­nately if you would like some in­for­ma­tion about Youth Ex­change closer to home, please email ad­min@corowaro­tary.org.au

For those stu­dents at Corowa High School in­ter­ested in Youth Ex­change, our cur­rent ex­change stu­dent from Fin­land, Vera Top­para will be only too happy to share her ex­pe­ri­ences, as will Sarah Hughes, who has re­cently re­turned from a year in France.
