Student Exchange Opportunity

for high school students in Curaçao to go on a Rotary exchange in Brazil, Germany or somewhere else


The Rotary Club of Curaçao has an opportunity to provide some local students between the age of 16 to 19 with a once-in-a-lifetime experience through Rotary International's Youth Exchange Program. Students can take part in a four- to six- week (a longer period is possible under certain circumstances) exchange in either Brazil, Mexico or Germany to immerse themselves in a new culture, learn a new language or simply explore a new part of the world. They will stay with host families that are pre-screened by Rotary. For more information please email: 





...... family in the country of their choice, and in return they will have the opportunity to host a student from another part of the world in our Dushi Korsou. Each year, for more than 20 years already, 8.000 students from over 100 countries have participated in the Rotary youth exchange program. 

Selected applicants and their parents will go through two rounds of interviews. An important criteria is that student (and their parents) should be a good ambassador for Curaçao and for promoting good understanding between nations. In addition, the student must cover the costs of airfare, insurance and incidentals for the travel abroad and their family must host a student from another part of the world for a similar period of time.  

Applications must be submitted to Rotary Club of Curaçao. Information sessions will be announced as soon as they are available at the clubhouse of the Rotary Club of Curaçao at Landhuis Zeelandia. For questions and registration for the session, please email us at 

Through cultural exchanges such as these, student's horizons can be broadened, their language skills perfected and they can help contribute to a global improvement in mutual understanding and respect.
