PROGRAM:  Rotary Youth Exchange
 
President John Olson introduced Felicity Dye, District 5050 Rotary Youth Exchange Chair, Bellingham Rotary, Sawyer Mauk, RYE Student, and Maeve Heard, RYE Student.
 
Felicity Dye presented an overview of the Rotary Youth Exchange. The upcoming year has been canceled due to the coronavirus, so the committee has been focusing on the students who have been deferred. Rotary Youth Exchange will start again in 2022-2023 Year. During this time, the District Committee has been promoting the RYE Program to the Clubs in District 5050 by presenting to the Clubs. Today is their 29th presentation. There are 8-9 Club participating in the RYE Program.
 
There are two RYE Programs – 1. Long-Term Exchange 2. Short-Term Exchange.
 
Why does Rotary do Youth Exchange? Rotary Youth Exchange promotes peace through cultural understanding and develops leadership in youth. Rotary Youth Exchange is one of the Rotary Avenues of Service – International Service and Youth Service. In 2018-19 there were approximately 10,000 total exchanges.
 
Impact of Youth Exchange is tremendous. Impact of ONE Student = 255 people. Impact of ~10,000 students in one year touches over 2.5 million people per year.
 
The future of Rotary begins with the youth. Youth Adventures in Leadership (YAIL), Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA), Interact and Rotary Youth Exchange are programs to “Plant Seeds” about Rotary to the Youth. These programs offer a glimpse of what Rotary International is about. Once these students participate in one of these programs, they are interested in giving back. Roteract is an opportunity for these students to continue with Rotary then eventually join Rotary.
 
For more information, check out the Club Resources on the Rotary Youth Exchange – District 5050 website.
 
Sawyer Mauk, South Whidbey High School, participated in the Long-Term Exchange Program. He traveled to Tarija, Boliva, South America. He provided information about Tarija – 39 national languages including German, TJA founded 251 years  before Boliva in 1574, Bolivian wine country, and Bolivia is know for its wine, dancing and BBQ.
 
RYE provided an opportunity to travel and he was able to travel throughout the country during his time there. This opportunity allow him to grow – independence, confidence and adaptability. Growth is Gradual & Hard to Pinpoint. He learned to speak better Spanish, learned to play the guitar and learned cooking from the Abuelas.
 
RYE is offering him opportunities to speak about the Rotary Youth Exchange to other students and represent Bolivia as a “reverse ambassador”. He is tapping into the Alumni Network and is attending Rotaract and Interact Sponsored Lectures.
 
Maeve Heard participated in the Short-Term Exchange. She spent eight weeks in Northern France in the summer of 2018. She was able to improve her French language skills. Maeve has a long-life friend with the family that she stayed with. This opportunity expanded her knowledge on global community and to pursue a college degree in International Studies with a minor in French Education.
 
Felicity Dye gave a shout out to Janice Ellis and the work that Janice has done with the Rotary Youth Exchange.
