How it works

Types of Friendship Exchanges

  • Visitor program
    Individual Rotarians, who may be accompanied by family members, spend a few days in a Rotarian's home abroad.
  • Team program
    Rotarian couples (typically four to six) visit several communities in a host district for up to one month.
  • Univocational
    Rotarians of the same occupation observe how their job is done in other countries.

Guidelines

  • Only Rotarians and their immediate families are eligible for the visitor program, and participation in the team program is limited to Rotarians and their spouses.
  • Spouses or children must always be accompanied by Rotarians on an exchange.
  • Rotarians interested in participating must apply through their club president. Not every district participates in Friendship Exchange, so prospective applicants should ask their club president about the program.
  • District governors from participating districts appoint a district Friendship Exchange chair, who is responsible for coordinating exchanges through a list of chairs from around the world. E-mail friendshipexchange@rotary.org to identify your district chair.
