HOLLIS BROOKLINE ROTARY ALSO supports the more demanding Rotary
Long-Term Exchanges (ten full months spent abroad).
In each year the Club sponsors just one inbound (foreign) and one outbound (only Brookline-
or Hollis-resident) exchange student, both of them for the full academic year. The inbounder
attends HBHS and lives with two or three Hollis- and Brookline-resident families. The outbounder
lives with families in the one of the approximately 40 countries in which she/he will live
Hollis Brookline Rotary's
Short-Term Exchange is a family-to-family program in which a local family and a foreign
family each host the other's child (between the ages of 15 and 18 1/2 years) for a few weeks
each. These short-stay exchanges happen during the summer.
Exchanges can be arranged with most countries for not less than three weeks and not more than
six weeks each in the U.S. and in the foreign country. Applications
should be completed early – by mid-January 2018 if possible – for the best
choice of destination countries! To apply, or just for more information, email
or call (978) 743-6143 !
TIMING IS EVERYTHING! IT TAKES A surprising amount of time to
prepare the application, to go through the screening process, and then to get ready to go out
(or to prepare for the arrival of the foreign student, when he/she comes here first). And of
course high-school students (and their parents!) are some of the busiest people in the world,
so grabbing their attention for the necessary chunks of time is a challenge. The short-stay
application is due in mid January, so – trust us – it is NOT too soon to start the
application process for a summer 2018 exchange!
