New Summer Exchange Opportunity

We are now offering Summer Short Term Family to Family or International Camps / Tours in addition to our long term youth exchange program. The Short Term Exchange Program (STEP) has two different formats to choose from:

Family to Family

This exchange involves the matching of a USA student between the ages of 15-17 with a student from another country. Typically age, interests and gender are factors that are considered when making a match. The USA student travels to the host country at the beginning of the summer for a one month stay with their host brother or sister and their family. The host brother or sister then comes to stay with the USA family for a month some time later in the summer. The students have a two month exchange (one month abroad and one month hosting).

Through a partnership between the Austin Rotary Club, Mower County Health and Human Services, Austin Public Schools and the Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation, a "Reading Oasis" is now available for families to enjoy reading books together and increasing early literacy skills. We are thankful for a community who collaborates to support educational excellence for all children.

Dear Austin Rotary Club Members and Friends,
 
Speechless is not usually a word used to describe me, and yet that is the best way to describe my surprise and humility at receiving your recognition. It was an honor to be given a Paul Harris Fellow and it was an additional delight to be presented the award by District Governor Karel. But, those honors aside, it was the kind words of President Duane, the actions of the Austin Rotary Club Board of Directors and the support from the members that took my breath (and words) away. Thank you.
 
Yes, I am included in an article in The Rotarian Magazine, and yes, I have worked diligently and passionately to accomplish the things I have accomplished, however, none of this happens in a vacuum and none of this would have happened if not for the support of the club and the members. Only a few people can undertake this kind of trip, but we cannot do it without the support and contributions of the thousands of people whom we represent. And that, my friends, is the part that made me speechless.
 
My passion for international development is fueled in part by your confidence and support in my representation of you. This could not be accomplished without the willingness of the Austin Club to say yes, let’s try this, let’s give, let’s support, let’s make a difference. Sponsoring this kind of grant starts with a “YES” and the Austin Rotary Club has said yes over and over again and I am so proud to be just one of the many people both impacted and empowered to act as a result of that support.
 
The current literacy grant that will impact so many in Austin is another great example of how saying YES is a powerful method of leveraging the will and support of thousands to make a difference in the world, which includes our own backyard. Thank you for allowing me to represent you and for saying YES to making a difference in the world, none of this is possible without each and every one of you.
 
Warm Regards,
Kathy
