Rotary Youth Exchange Florida welcomes our new outbound students to their first orientation in January and then again in June. Coming from all parts of Florida and Georiga, these students will learn about the RYE program, work with Rotarians and Rotex in a variety of activities, and make friends with others who will be sharing their experiences next year. We congratulate them all and look forward to helping them prepare for the amazing experience to come.
Reply Promptly to Mail, E-mails, and Messages – Remember, we are counting on you (not your parents) to manage your exchange. If you get an e-mail from the Youth Exchange Chair, your Country Coordinator, or a Rotary counselor, here or overseas, reply to it right away. When you are sent paperwork and instructions from Tzell Youth Exchange Travel or from CISI Insurance, be sure to do what you are asked to do, completely and promptly. Take charge, be efficient, make it happen, and the result will be a wonderful, unforgettable, life changing year.
