Established in 1997 as short-term exchange for ages 18-25

New Generations Exchanges

May 2011 - RI Board requested transition plan for New Generations Exchanges

Youth Exchange committee and regional Youth Exchange groups were consulted

May 2012 – Feedback from regional groups was presented to the Board
