Host an exchange student

Is your family curious about other countries and cultures? Whether your family is small or large, with children young or old, you might be just right for hosting a Rotary Youth Exchange student this year; all it takes is a desire to welcome someone to your community and home. 

Northfield Rotary Youth Exchange is seeking host families for inbound high school students from Norway, Uganda, Spain, Belgium, and Faroe Islands. Families host one student for 3-4 months while the student attends Northfield High School. As our exchange program starts up again since the start of the pandemic, it is an opportunity for our community to extend a welcome to these special students coming to Northfield. 

Learn about the program at,, or contact me at 507-301-6785. I am the Youth Exchange Officer and I'm happy to chat about the program.
