The Rotary Youth Exchange Program is powered by volunteers from local Rotary clubs and other community members.
Volunteers are critical to the success of our exchange program. Without our wonderful Club Counsellors, Youth Exchange Officers (YEOs), Country Officers, and administrative volunteers this program wouldn’t exist!
To meet our stringent youth protection requirements, all volunteers involved in the Rotary Youth Exchange program must register and be approved as a volunteer through the Youth Exchange Administrative Hub (YEAH). This includes all committee members, district leaders, club YEO officers and club counsellors.
The form will require that you provide contact information for three personal references; please note that these references may not be relatives or volunteers with RYE District 9640. If you begin the form but do not have all of the necessary information, or for some other reason need to finish at a later time, there is an option on each page to save your data and continue later.
In addition to the application form, volunteers are required to submit:
- Your Queensland Blue Card and/or Working with Children Card depending on which state you are volunteering in. You will be emailed about this once your application form has been completed.
- Complete a number of youth protection training programs as required by our youth protection policy. You will receive an automatic invitation via email to complete these once your application has been approved, and you then have XX months to complete the training.
