Young Professionals Exchange Program
Young Professionals Exchange Program – Spearheaded by Issaquah Rotary, and working together with other local Rotary & Rotaract clubs, this program is about helping young professionals, age 21 – 30, build their understanding of how global business operates. The goal of the program is to build a new generation of Rotary leaders with global perspective and international cultural understanding – both personally and professionally. We “exchange local young Rotarians with similarly-aged Rotarians in other countries, visiting representative local companies for earnest discussion on how business is conducted in that area. Home stays and cultural activities make for a broad, life-changing experience. A mainstay of this program is building personal and professional relationships that provide the foundation for future peaceful cooperation. The current exchange is with Osaka, Japan, taking place during Summer 2019.
