      New cartoon shows the value of Rotary

      Josh's Choice

      There’s a new way to tell young people about the benefits of Youth Exchange and Rotary’s other New Generations programs: an animated video illustrating how Rotary helps young people volunteer, grow as leaders, and experience new cultures, all while having fun.
      Watch the video, which is available in three languages:
      Then join us on social media to spread the word. Share the video on your own Facebook page and tag someone who might be interested in Youth Exchange or a Rotary service project.
      Changes in New Generations Exchange
      The RI Board of Directors recently made changes to exchange opportunities offered to young adults. Starting 1 July, New Generations Exchange
      • Will be called New Generations Service Exchange
      • Will be under the oversight of district New Generations Service committees; these exchanges will no longer be administered by district Youth Exchange committees, and districts will not be subject to Youth Exchange certification requirements for New Generations Service Exchange activity
      • Will be open to young adults ages 21-30
      Guidance and resources will be provided in coming months to the 2013-14 district New Generations Service committee chairs.
      This new activity gives districts the freedom to develop flexible exchange experiences that meet the needs of young adults while promoting international understanding, a commitment to service, and an understanding of Rotary as young people move from university study through the first years of their professional life.
      Contact your district New Generations Service committee chair with any questions.
      Poll: How do you involve past exchange students?
      Youth Exchange can be a life-changing experience, but what happens when it’s over? Take our one-question poll and share what your club or district does to keep past exchange students engaged. We’ll publish poll results in a future newsletter.

      Our newest certified districts
      Congratulations to District 3050 (parts of Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, and Rajasthan, India), which has met certification requirements to participate in outbound-only exchanges, and to District 3131 (part of Maharashtra, India), which has met full certification requirements to participate in Rotary Youth Exchange.
      Note that Districts 2031 and 2032 (both part of Italy), are fully certified. These districts were formed from previously certified District 2030.
      See the current list of noncertified districts.
      Do you use a shared email address?
      Users of Member Access and the Youth Exchange workgroup site should be aware that email addresses now can be listed under one individual only. This means that multiple users cannot use a shared address (e.g., yeo_anytown@. . . or district0000@. . .) to sign in to Member Access. Please ensure that Rotarians in your club and district are aware of this change.
      Latest Youth Exchange Directory


      The Youth Exchange Directory is updated and emailed quarterly, but the current version can be downloaded anytime from the Youth Exchange workgroup site. All district and multidistrict chairs can visit the site by clicking on Rotary Workgroups on the Member Access welcome page. Note: In order to sign in, district and multidistrict chairs must use the same email address they used when they registered for a Member Access account.
      If you help administer exchanges and do not have the most recent directory, contact your district or multidistrict chair.
