Rotary District 6080 is pleased to offer a one-month cultural exchange opportunity for young professionals.
Since 1965, over 30,000 young professionals between the ages of 25-40 have taken the opportunity to learn about other cultures and develop their leadership skills so that they may address the needs of their communities and an increasing global workplace. Currently, over 50 teams embark on a GSE adventure each year.
In April, 2010, a team of young professionals from south central Missouri, Rotary District 6080, will travel to South Korea for a month long cultural exchange. Currently, a team of young professionals from South Korea is visiting central Missouri for a month. Rotary Group Study Exchanges fulfill their mission of international understanding and, as a bonus, create lifelong memories and friendships.
Currently, Rotary District 6080 is searching for a team of young professionals from the ages of 25-40 to join their team leader Rotarian and Past District Governor, Joe Beltz from Mountain Grove, for a cultural exchange to Australia in the spring of 2011.
