Applications open for short term exchange to Brazil: July – September 2024

Applications are now open for high school students aged 15-17 who reside in District 9640 (Goondwindi to Grafton and throughout the Gold Coast) to participate in a one-in-a-lifetime short-term exchange with our exchange partner District 4500 in Brazil.

District 4500 is located in Northeastern Brazil encompassing the stages of Penambuco, Paraiba and Rio Grande do Norte. This region is endowed with natural beauties from mountains to the sea.

The short term exchange program is a family to family exchange – this means that participating students will spend their exchange with a Brazilian family, and in turn their child will come to Australia from November – February to be hosted by the Australian students family.

During your exchange you will attend school, community and Rotary activities including the incredible ‘Mountain to Sea’ Summer Camp in Natal from Friday 11 August 2023 – Sunday 22 August 2023.

Students can arrive in Brazil during either July or early August, and will stay for three months.

Applications are invited from students who will be aged 15-17 during the dates of their exchange. Applications close on 15 May 2023. If you would like more information about this exchange opportunity and how to apply, please contact our Americas Country Coordinator Kathryn Koch on or click the Apply Now button on our home page to submit an expression of interest.
