The Rotary Youth Exchange (RYE) program is aimed at improving world relations one student at a time.  Understanding other cultures is critical to attaining a peaceful world.  There is no better way to learn about other countries and cultures, as well as your own, than living in another country.  In the RYE program a local student travels to a foreign country to live and attend high school for one school year and in exchange a student from a foreign country comes and lives in Yerington and goes to school here.  Typically the students will live with three different host families in order to give them a more varied experience with local customs and people. 

In recent years Yerington Rotary has sponsored students living in France, Poland, Slovakia, Taiwan, Sweden and Brazil.  Yerington Rotary has hosted students from Italy, France, Poland, Argentina, Brazil, Belgium and Denmark.
