This committee solicits applicants for the Rotary Group Study Exchange program. Members interview Team Leader and Team Member applicants for Outbound exchange prior to District interviews.
What time committment is required?
1-2 meetings to interview any candidates for the Outbound Team and to finalize schedule for the Inbound Team. When the Inbound Team is in York, assist with being a tour guide for the day.
Can I host an Inbound Team member?
Yes! But sometimes it’s competitive and participation on the GSE Committee is helpful.
Can I lead an Outbound Team?
Yes! Each year the District is told which country we will be exchanging with. The District GSE Comittee will then interview Rotarians to select a Team Leader. Participation in previous exchanges is helpful, so is language skill.
Important things to know
- Work load is generally just in the spring. The rest of the year we don’t do anything.
- We are always looking for qualified candidates to be a member of an Outbound Team. Team members can’t be related to a Rotarian. The Team Leader must be a Rotarian.
- It’s a great experience! You’ll get to host or interact with team members from a different country. Possibly develop lifelong friendships. Maybe even visit their homes in the future!
