Through the program, teams of professionals exchange visits between paired areas in different countries. The exchange involves four- to six-week visits, during which team members share personal knowledge of their own country and experience the customs, vocations, and lifestyles of another.

The purpose of a Group Study Exchange is to promote international understanding and good-will through person-to-person contact. While abroad, team members stay in Rotarians’ homes and have the opportunity to meet their professional counterparts. They will also give presentations to Rotary clubs and other groups about our islands.

The Rotary Foundation provides a round-trip air ticket, and local Rotarians in the host country provide meals, lodging, and group travel in their district. Team members pay for personal and incidental expenses.

People interested in applying should be employed full-time in the hospitality/tourism sector. Young professionals within the age range of 25 to 40 are encouraged to apply. Applicants must live/be employed in St Maarten/St Martin/Anguilla and St Barth’s and also be citizens of their respective countries.
