Outbound Orientation was a hit!! We got through an incredible amount of instruction, information, rules, safety, guidance, and procedures. The outbounds were excited, engaged, and inquisitive! The parents were supportive and proud. We also had some pretty awesome Rebounds who came to provide support, and ROTEX who took charge and helped run the show!! Kaley and I couldn’t have done it all without you! I am so proud of our District, in the way we successfully prepare, while mixing in interaction and fun - student breakouts, camp fires, and Rotary B’s Archery! The weekend orientation camp was a huge success!

Thank you, McKenah and Miranda for Skyping with us today! It was great to see and talk to you! We appreciate you sharing some of your experiences with us!

Special thank you to our District Governor - Mr. Fun, Jim Erickson! Thank you for coming and supporting us!

Stan, Dan and Colleen, and Jennette - so glad that you were able to come and help put on such a great Outbound Orientation retreat! Thank you!

After almost ten years working with Rotary Youth Exchange in District 5490, and now 5495, I will be leaving soon, to move to the state of Washington. I will sorely miss RYE, and all the friends I have made over the years.

The students for the 2015-16 school year are nearing the end of their exchange. Some of the inbounds have already gone home, and we do miss them. Others are on the train trip around the USA. The outbounds will be returning soon from their adventures.

The new 2016-17 students will be starting their exchanges in the next few months (schools in Arizona start early in August). Some of our outbounds are still waiting for the paperwork from their host country.

And, we will be starting soon to consider students who want to go on exchange for the 2017-18 school year. If you are interested, please visit our website, www.Rotary5490Youth.com.

Rotary Youth Exchange Program in Rotary District 5490. We send high school students abroad, and bring in students from abroad, for a full school year. We also have a short-term summer family-to-family exchange available.

This is a good reason to learn multiple languages...

WORLD VOICES: "A new study now suggests that the practice of speaking two languages could also help protect the brain in the event of a stroke. Researchers from the UK and India studied more than 600 stroke patients in Hyderabad, India—a city in which multiple languages are commonly spoken—and found that those who spoke more than one language had double the chance of recovering from the condition than those who spoke only one language."
