BeaverTales 2023-2024

On The Road Again


So good to be back again and waiting for our first reports from our new class of adventurers. But sad to see the list of names from 2020-2021 who almost went.

BeaverTales is a collection of letters home from Rotary Youth Exchange students. The students are from District 7080 in South-Western Ontario.

You will see a pattern to the stories. November can be tough with occasional homesickness and the struggle with a new language and culture. By February the language is coming but the English is slipping. When May rolls around the students suddenly realize the exchange is almost over, but there is still so much they want to do.

Below you can read about the amazing experiences with each other, with their families, with their sponsoring Rotary clubs, and, through publication on the Internet, with any interested party.

Their stories will be posted here in November 2023, February 2024, and May 2024.

If you have any questions please contact our BeaverTales editor.
