支出 HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?

青少年交換計畫由地區以及當地扶輪社作為協調,每個地區的花費不盡相同。通常學生及家長需承擔下列費用:

Youth Exchange is coordinated at the regional level by Rotary districts and at the local level by Rotary clubs. Costs vary greatly from one district to another. Typically, students and their parents cover the following expenses:

  • 往返機票 Round-trip airfare

  • 健康及意外保險 Health and accident insurance

  • 旅行證件 Travel documents

  • 服裝及其他必需品 Clothing and other necessities

  • 零用錢 Spending money

  • 意外或者緊急的開支 Emergency funds for unpredicted expenses

  • 旅行和旅遊 Ancillary travel and tours

學生在大部分的扶輪地區以及扶輪社不必支付安置費用,使得任何人都能夠享受交換的經驗

In most clubs and districts, students do not pay placement fees, so those with financial constraints can share the exchange experience.

分攤安置費用的是寄宿家庭(支付食宿費用)、寄宿社區(支付學費及其他安排)和接待扶輪社(每個月提供大約美金$50-100的小額津貼)

Sharing in the costs are host families (who pay for room and board), the host community (who cover school tuition and arrangements) and host Rotary club (who offer a small stipend of usually US$50-100 monthly.)

As a host family, you will

  • 提供食宿 Provide room and board

Host families aren’t compensated financially. The program is run entirely by dedicated volunteers, which help keep costs low.

  • 透過扶輪社所在地指引或者電話找到地區扶輪社的網址。 Identify your local Rotary club through Club Locator or phone listings, and find out if a club or district has listed its Web site with Rotary International. 

扶輪社友 Rotarians

 

幾十年來,扶輪社一直保持著青年交流的重要性。扶輪社在背後支持每一個交換計畫。對於長期交換,當地的扶輪社會處理的學校註冊、學費及其他教育上的問題。

Dedicated Rotarian volunteers have kept Youth Exchange vital for decades. Rotarians work behind the scenes to handle the logistics of each exchange. For long-term exchanges, the host club  arranges school enrollment, tuition, and other educational events.

青年交換辦事處是這個計畫的主導者。由地方、地區扶輪社所選的自願者,經過培訓後,可以成為學生與青年交流委員會之間的聯絡人。

Youth Exchange officers are the program leaders. Elected at the club and district levels, these volunteers are trained to serve as liaisons between students and the district Youth Exchange committee.
