Rotary Youth Exchange Orientation for Our Two RYE Students
Rotary Youth Exchange (RYE) students and their parents attended a District 5510 orientation meeting all day Saturday February 4. The RYE orientation program guided students and their parents through a number of topics from the rules of the road in living up to Rotary standards abroad to more banale topics of what to expect when they first arrive including a required list of questions of their host families. Your RYE Youth Exchange Officers Max Rumbaugh and Jeanette Griswold put in a lot of time on this program and it shows in changing the lives of young people. What better diplomacy than sending our kids abroad to learn about another culture and bringing in foreign exchange students and giving them a year-long taste of Scottsdale life.
