Rotary Merritt has taken a break from the Rotary Youth Exchange program for the 2019/2020 year.  Anyone interested in participating in this program in the future is encouraged to reach out to the club for details.

If this sounds like an exciting opportunity to you, then our Youth Exchange Program is a perfect fit! You can find the FAQs for this year-long adventure here, and also contact us for more information. 


Here's what some of our inbound students have to say about their exchange experience:



"My name is Nuchwara Rojwannasin and mostly, everybody in Merritt called me Pam. I'm the Rotary inbound 2011-2012 from Thailand district 3340. Canada is my first choice of the destination that I really want to go and one year experiences that I received is the most amazing one that a person could imagine. I really recommend that if you got a chance to be part of rotary exchange. You just have to give it a shot!! In this moment, I'm the senior year of Thammasat University in Bangkok, Thailand. 

I will graduate at the end of this year. The time went so fast. Those memories that I have in Canada is still like yesterday. A lot love from here and I hope to see all of you again."
