We decided to "tackle" this new program in Georgia, with Michael Park's guidance. We sponsored an exchange student from Finland in the Rotary Youth Exchange program, as well as solicited 3 host families to house the exchange student. It has been more of a challenge than anticipated (as any new important program would be), but it has been more than rewarding for the Rotarians involved, the host families and their kids, teachers at Centennial HS, coaches and other students who have all been part of this experience. We have learned a lot and will be hosting another student in 2019-20. This program is the cornerstone for promoting peace and cooperation throughout the world. It is life changing for many of us involved.
