New Summer Exchange Opportunity

We are now offering Summer Short Term Family to Family or International Camps / Tours in addition to our long term youth exchange program. The Short Term Exchange Program (STEP) has two different formats to choose from:

Family to Family

This exchange involves the matching of a USA student between the ages of 15-17 with a student from another country. Typically age, interests and gender are factors that are considered when making a match. The USA student travels to the host country at the beginning of the summer for a one month stay with their host brother or sister and their family. The host brother or sister then comes to stay with the USA family for a month some time later in the summer. The students have a two month exchange (one month abroad and one month hosting).

Through a partnership between the Austin Rotary Club, Mower County Health and Human Services, Austin Public Schools and the Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation, a "Reading Oasis" is now available for families to enjoy reading books together and increasing early literacy skills. We are thankful for a community who collaborates to support educational excellence for all children.
