Rotary Club of Antioch-IL


 The Rotary Club of Antioch Youth Exchange program provides High School District 117 students with an opportunity to live and study in other countries.

Recruitment for the 2019-2020 year is underway.

Two main programs are offered:

The LONG TERM program that places a student in a foreign country for eleven months.

The SHORT TERM program typically takes place in the summer months. Students in this program are paired with a student of another country. They then schedule a 3-6 week stay at one of their residence followed by the two traveling to the others residence for another 3-6 week stay. 


The Rotary Club of Antioch will be presenting the Youth Exchange program during language classes at both High Schools. Students interested in either program attended a follow-up meeting with their parents to learn more about the program on September 11th. If you were unable to attend this meeting, pleaes contact the club YEO at
