Rotary Youth Exchange: Invite Youth Exchange alumni to reconnect with Rotary
Get connected with Rotary alumni during the first Alumni Reconnect Week, this October 1 through 8. Invite former Rotary Youth Exchange students, host families, and community partners to share their experience at a Rotary club or district event. Alumni already have a strong connection to Rotary, and when they reconnect at a club meeting or get involved in a community project, they can learn even more ways that Rotary changes lives locally and globally. District alumni chairs around the world are already planning fun and engaging ways to reconnect with Rotary. Work with your district leaders to plan a service activity, arrange for a talk at a club meeting or event, or organize a fundraiser to support future Youth Exchange students. Or connect with local Rotary clubs to find out about events happening in your area. When alumni reconnect with Rotary, they discover the benefits of membership, they network with proven leaders, and they explore new opportunities to give back through Rotary.
