ROTARY SEEKS BUSINESS/PROFESSIONAL PEOPLE FOR EXCHANGES WITH ISRAEL
Group Cultural Exchange
Rotary International has created a new Group Cultural Exchange (GCE). This is a hybrid between the traditional Group Study Exchange and Rotary Friendship Exchange, and is open to Rotarians and Non- Rotarians!
There will be two GCE’s next spring: one with District 2490 in Israel. This will be approximately two-week trips. The team to Israel will travel approximately April 25 – May 7.
The purpose of the trip is foster International goodwill and understanding. Specifically to learn more about other cultures as well as teach others about our culture and to help identify service projects that can be executed by clubs working together from each District.
The Team will be in homestays in their destination districts. However, this is a pay as you go trip. Participants are expected to fund their own transportation and may be required to purchase some meals and other expenses depending on the circumstances.
Teams are open to Rotarians and non-Rotarians alike who are at least 25 years old. Members may go as couples. Upon the team’s return, every member is expected to participate in at least 3 club meeting/event presentations and the District Conference the next year. Members are also expected to help staff the committee for the following year(s).
The deadline for receipt of the applications is December 4th at 5 PM. It is requested that applicants be available for interviews on Saturday, December 9, 2017, at the Boy Scout Service Center, 393 Marshall Ave, St Paul, MN. Interviews with team candidates will be held as may be necessary.
For an application form and/or local Rotary club information and contact person, please call Kathy Hughitt at 651/636-9054 or email@example.com.
