Group Study Exchange Progam (GSE)

The club has hosted many international teams from around the world through the Group Study Exchange Program.  We have also sponsored a number of young professional, non-Rotarians to participate in an international educational, vocational and cultural exchange.  This program helps foster world understanding and acceptance of social differences between races.

Group Study Exchange, an educational, vocational and social activity of The Rotary Foundation, offers a unique person-to-person opportunity for the promotion of better understanding and friendly relations among peoples of the world. The program provides travel grants for the exchange of teams of young business and professional men and women between paired districts in different countries.

PartnerWithUs-bigThis opportunity enables them to study and experience vocational institutions and the cultures and customs of their host country. The opportunity exists for the selected teams to present themselves and their cultures to a diverse range of people.
Travelling with a sense of mission derived from their desire to learn and to promote understanding, these young men and women bring personal knowledge of their own country to the thousands they meet while abroad. Through their study of another country, their observations of its customs, their explorations into its business and professional life, their meetings and discussions with its people, come many opportunities for the development of understanding and lasting friendships.
Group Study Exchange is a reciprocal program. Over a one or two year period each of the paired districts must both send and receive a team.
A District selects a team of outstanding young people who represent a cross section of business and professions in the district and sends them to a district in another country for a study program of not less than four weeks and not more than six weeks.
