Inbounds

An "Inbound" is a high school student who has been selected by a sponsoring Rotary Club abroad to spend their exchange in either California or Nevada. A Long Term Exchange Student will spend a year on exchange living with 2 or 3 host families. A Short Term Inbound Exchange Student will spend 3 – 4 weeks hosted by a California or Nevada host family that has a high school son or daughter. They will then swap homes, and the student from California or Nevada will be hosted by the foreign student's family in their home town.

Because Rotary District 5190 is geographically the largest Rotary District in the continental United States, an Inbound student might be living in the forest of Lake Tahoe, or might be in the Nevada high desert. They may be in a city of 350,000 people, or a town of 4,000 people.

Exchange Students reap many rewards from an exchange experience, including:

  • Serving as an ambassador for their country and community
  • Benefiting from immersion in another culture while adapting to a new way of life
  • Making lifelong friends, not only within the host country but also with other students from around the world
  • Learning about the practices and accomplishments of people in other countries
  • Returning home with a greater sense of the world and a deeper understanding of themselves and their culture
  • Assuming leadership roles shaped by lessons from the experience
  • Building memories that will be with them forever
