Re-invigorating your Youth Exchange Program
This is my experience.
Many have been here before
And many will follow -
But this time is mine.
My journey will present
numerous doors to
Some of these doors will be open,
Some will be closed.
But one thing I know for certain,
The key to all doors lies within.
I am a person of action!
I seek to understand!
Be on Purpose
I am certain of my outcome and move steadily toward it!
I focus on things I can be thankful for!
Be of Service
I give of myself!
Be Here Now
I live in the moment!
Why do some thrive while
others just survive?
Phase I:Living Within – this is the foundation of your exchange.
- function in the language
- establish rapport with counsellor & host family
- respect, understand and observe local customs & laws and the 4 D’s
Phase II:Ambassador – growing, sharing and developing – branching out.
Phase III:Leaving a Legacy – “fruits” of your exchange year are born – giving back.
**While not every student’s progression will look the same, the 3 phases described are hallmarks of the students who best represent the program’s objectives.
truly be there
“Be the change you want to see in the exchange”
– District 5370
