Interested in Getting Involved?

Volunteers are critical to the success of our exchange program. Without our Club Counselors, Youth Exchange Officers (YEOs), District Committee members and other volunteers this program would not exist!

To complete the Volunteer Application you’ll need to fill out a form online, submit a background check, and plan on taking a few important online training courses.

Volunteer Application

To be filled out by all Rotary Volunteers

In accordance with regulations of the US Department of State, all Rotary Youth Exchange volunteers are required to complete this web form and submit it prior to serving as a Youth Exchange Officer, Counselor, or other role at the club or district level.

The form will require that you provide contact information for three personal references. Please note that these references may not be relatives or volunteers with District 5130 Youth Exchange. Only one reference can be a Rotarian. If you begin the form but do not have all of the necessary information, or for some other reason need to finish at a later time, there is an option on each page to save your data and continue later.

Once your application is submitted you will receive links by email to complete the background check and required training courses.

Required Training Courses

  • Youth Protection Awareness
  • Volunteer Training
