Group Study Exchange

The Rotary Foundation’s Group Study Exchange (GSE) program is a unique cultural and vocational exchange opportunity for businesspeople and professionals between the ages of 25 and 40 who are in the early stages of their careers. The program provides travel grants for teams to exchange visits in paired areas of different countries. For four to six weeks, team members experience the host country’s culture and institutions, observe how their vocations are practiced abroad, develop personal and professional relationships, and exchange ideas.

The District 2780 GSE Team for 2013 is from Japan.  The Rocky Mount Rotary Club had the privileged of hosting a combined meeting with the Nash County Rotary Club on April 22, 2013.  At this meeting, we met the program participants from Japan and heard them present information about their background, culture, and experiences with Rotary and Rotaract.
