Rotary Youth Exchange is a program that allows local teenagers to spend a year in a foreign country.  In exchange, teenagers from around the world come to spend a year in the United States.  It is a life changing experience for each of these students. The Rotary Club of Carson City and other Rotary clubs arrange for housing, education, and sponsor these lucky students.  Over Nevada Day weekend these guests from around the world, are invited to gather in Carson City under the supervision of the Rotary Club of Carson City.  This year twelve students joined us for the weekend.  This year's teens were from Sweden, Denmark, Taiwan, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Austria, Brazil, Spain, and Germany.   They visited Carson City and Virginia City. They joined local Rotarians marching in the Nevada Day parade. The teenagers made new friends and wonderful memories. As a result of the Rotary Youth Exchange program students learn leadership skills, become global citizens, and often learn a new language.    Learn more at
