Define your purpose

Friendship exchanges are organized around at least one of three themes: culture, service, and vocation.

 

Fund your exchange

All exchanges are paid for by the participants or their districts. Hosts are not expected to assume a significant financial burden. Club or district funds may be available to offset the costs of exchanges that have a vocational emphasis.
