District 7430 Welcomes you to our Rotary Youth Exchange Family!
Patti Smith, District Chair
We are happy you have decided to become an Exchange Student and it is our hope that you have a great experience in our district during your exchange year.
District 7430 is in the South Eastern part of Pennsylvania. We have a very active Youth Exchange Program offering many activities from September through June of your exchange year. Also offered to you are opportunities for travel at the end of your school year. There may also be opportunities to travel with your Rotary Club and Host family. Please discuss these possibilities with your Rotary Club Counselor and Host Family.
The following MUST be completed prior to your arrival to the USA:
As an Exchange student in D 7430 you will receive an allowance from your Rotary Club. This amount is listed on your Guarantee Form but you should expect to receive approximate $75 to $125 per month. This is your money to be used as you see the need.
Financial Responsibilities for the Inbound Student.
It is important for you and your parents to understand your financial responsibilies as an Inbound Exchange Student into D7430. Your Host family will cover your room and board. It is important for you to discuss with your host family other financial responsibilities they might help out with, such as personal items (shampoo, soap, toothpaste, etc).
The District committee organizes several activities throughout your exchange year. The following is a list of these activities and the cost to you.
There is an optional "End of the Year" trip available to the exchange student. This trip are offered at the expense of the student and parents. Information on this trip is located on this website. This trip can range from $1500 to $3000 depending on location and length of the trip. If you have questions on this trip please contact D7430 District Chair or Inbound Coordinator.
The student will, of course, have incidential expenses throughout the exchange year, such as personal items, souvenir/mementos, etc. These incidential costs are at the discretion of the student and natural parents.
District 7430 and the Youth Exchange Committee looks forward to sharing and experiencing the year with the exchange student. The District Chair and Inbound Coodinator are available via email if you have any concerns throughout the experience. Please contact them if you feel the need.
