We are open for business again as of 07/2022 for international youth exchanges.- Dave Soler
At a July 21, 2021 meeting of COREL (Council of Regional Exchange Leaders), Lindsay Griswold, Rotary International Supervisor of Youth Exchange and Youth Protection, announced that Rotary districts may resume sending and hosting students on July 1, 2022.  Districts are currently allowed to receive applications, interview and select students, orient prospective students and their parents, and sign exchange agreements with partner districts. She explained that the Rotary International Board is unlikely to change this decision unless the COVID situation gets much worse.
