After a meeting of all Australia District Governors, it has been decided to suspend the Youth Exchange Program for 12 months nationally in all formats. 
This will mean there will be no inbound students arriving from overseas in July/August 2020, and there will be no outbound students in January 2021. 
We are hoping, depending on the COVID-19 situation, that we may be able to accept inbound students again in July/August 2021, and our next group of outbounds will be in January 2022. 
We appreciate the decision of the DGs and it is in the best interest of not only the program, but also all people associated with this truly life changing youth program of Rotary International. 
Stay safe and well
Yours in Rotary
Bruce McIntyre, Chairman, District 9790 Youth Exchange
