Rotary Youth Exchange – Part of the Team
Each year Rotary Youth Exchange provides thousands of young people worldwide with an opportunity to experience the cultures and accomplishments of people in other countries. The ambassadorial nature of the exchange promotes world understanding and peace.
Rotary Youth Exchange students are making an IMPACT by fundraising for Backpack Beds by Swags for Homeless.
Swags for Homeless was founded by a former Rotary Youth Exchange student, Tony Clark, who travelled to Finland in 1992:
“Being a Rotary Exchange student was the best year of my life. It helped to develop many of the life skills that enabled me to start this charity. Thank you to my fellow Rotary Youth Exchange students working with Swags for Homeless to save homeless peoples lives”. Tony Clark, CEO & Founder
