The Group Study Exchange (GSE) program of The Rotary Foundation is a unique cultural and vocational exchange opportunity for young business and professional men and women between the ages of 25 and 40 and in the early years of their professional lives.
The program provides travel grants for teams to exchange visits between paired areas in different countries.
For four to six weeks, team members experience the host country's institutions and ways of life, observe their own vocations as practiced abroad, develop personal and professional relationships, and exchange ideas.
We try to avoid scheduling too many Rotary functions or more than three Rotary club meetings per week. If clubs are located within a short distance from each other, we recommend organizing multiclub meetings whenever possible.
Include time to join in the day-to-day life of hosts, especially if they are involved with specific Rotary projects such as reading day at a local school.
Plan a meeting for the end of the visit to discuss the team’s views on the host program.
Maintain control of the program itinerary.Do not allow host families to add extra, unplanned activities. Any additions could force cancellation of some previously planned activities and/or reduce the time allotted for the visiting team’s rest and relaxation.
Checkthat Rotarians responsible for meeting, escorting, and/or transporting the team at various points along the route know exactly what is expected of them.
Prepare an information sheet with the visiting team’s names, addresses, e-mail addresses, and telephone numbers and distribute to each host family.
Prepare an information sheet with the host Rotarian families’ names, addresses, e-mail addresses, and telephone numbers, as well as other key personnel (e.g., club officers) and distribute to the visiting team members. If possible, also provide a map of the host club’s area, with the host families’ location clearly marked.
Prepare a folder/binder with information about your area and your club. You may include brochures from local attractions, the latest newsletter from your local Chamber of Commerce, or information on the latest projects your club has coordinated.
