Friendship Exchange


Rotary Friendship Exchanges are an opportunity to experience another culture guided by friends in Rotary. Exchange Participants take turn hosting and visiting one another, forging friendships that last a lifetime.

Our District welcomes the opportunity to be involved with the Friendship Exchange.  This type of exchange is new to our District, but we feel that through our experiences with many Group Study Exchanges in the past, we are well versed in what is required to make this type of an exchange a positive experience for all involved.   Over the past couple of years we have been involved with Friendship Exchanges with Kosovo and Australia. 

While our District is predominantly rural, we can offer our visitors a true cultural flavor of what life is in Northwestern Pennsylvania while still offering access to the amenities of urban life with our proximity to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  To learn more about what our area has to offer,  click here.
