Short-Term Youth Exchange

The Short Term Exchange Program year is in Kick-Off season.  Last year was a very "low scoring year" for participants with only 5 completing an exchange. I am hoping that together we can "tackle" this problem and really put some points on the scoreboard. It was only 5 or 6 years ago we typically had 15 or so participating.
For new clubs who have not participated in the Short Term Exchange Program before, this is the least expensive way to really " score a touchdown " for Youth Exchange. All information is available on the District website.
Let me give you a few (game) highlights and explanation about the program:
  • Students have a very high probability of being assigned to the country of choice on the master country list.
  • Students normally exchange for 3 weeks in each other’s country (total of 6 weeks) If agreed the exchange could be 4 weeks + 4 weeks.
  • The cost to the club is minimal. 3 or so banners and a few membership meeting meals for the student and then visiting student.
  • Clubs need to have an assigned counselor.
  • This program is promoted as a family to family cultural exchange. We encourage parents to communicate with each other, also.
  • The student has a $125 application fee plus the cost of airfare and travel insurance.
  • Students can arrange return plane trip so as to travel together.
  • District interviews & family training take place on January 25, 2020 for exchanges in the summer of 2020.
  • Language proficiency is not necessary. This is not an academic exchange, it is a cultural exchange.
  • Please promote your candidates as “student ambassadors for Rotary International”.
  • It has been proven that STEP is a feeder program to our Long Term Academic Youth Exchange program.
  • Send all completed applications to the attention of Melissa Kopp at our District 7390 office. Deadline is January 10, 2020.   
Please feel free to contact Tom Barton ( or 717-771-4240) if you have any questions.  Now let’s get out there and “Score” !

2022-23 District Governor Nominations

The time has come to begin the nominating process for our District Governor 2022-23.  This will continue our three-year projection for District 7390’s leadership.
Every club has an outstanding leader who could be a potential District Governor. Look around and ask yourself, who is that person in our club? It is the person who is a good leader, interested, involved, gives financially to Rotary and The Rotary Foundation and is helpful to other members. Is it me? We all need to give encouragement and “plant the seed” for others to move forward. I encourage you to think about yourself or other club members that would make a great District Governor! You may suggest a Rotarian from another Club so long as you first obtain agreement from the Club where the candidate is a member.
The District Governor is the officer of RI in the District, functioning under the general control and supervision of the RI Board. The Governor has responsibility for organizing new Clubs; strengthening existing Clubs; promoting membership growth; supporting The Rotary Foundation; planning and presiding at the District Conference, PETS and District Training Assembly; issuing a monthly newsletter; focusing attention on important Rotary issues; motivating Rotarians to participate in service activities; recognizing the outstanding contributions of Rotarians in the District; and many other responsibilities. The candidate should be aware of the qualifications, duties and responsibilities of a District Governor and must demonstrate willingness, commitment and ability (physically and otherwise) to fulfill the duties and responsibilities of the office of Governor.     
Suggestions for District Governor Nominee 2022-23 must be received in the District Office by December 13, 2019 to be considered by the Nominating Committee. Interviews for the 2022-23 District Governor will be held Thursday, January 9, 2020 at the Byrnes Health Education Center in York. 
Contact the District Office or DG Paddy Rooney with questions about nominating a candidate for District Governor!
