Multidistrict Denmark is active in youth exchange
Every year we exchange 150-170 students with many overseas countries for one year. As a part of this exchange we receive the same number of students. In all our exchange we work by the rules set by Rotary International Code of Policies.
Below we have made a short presentation of our expectations.
Multidistrict Denmark accepts students from 15½ to 18 years old on arrival.
We offer insurance by Europæiske ERV which is approved by Rotary and is complimentary to the Danish Health Service. This makes it a good alternative to foreign insurance.
The arrival dates in Denmark are the 1st weekend in August or the 3rd weekend in January. The guarantee form will determine the final destination airport.
Students should bring 2.000 DKK (appx 300 USD) for an Emergency Fund. The monthly allowance is equal to 100 EUR.
All documents should be sent electronically to the Assistant Chairman Inbound. We do not accept handwritten applications and we need scanned documents in a good quality. Applications should include a copy of passport and a copy of the birth certificate.
Sufficient proficiency in English language to successfully participate in the RYE program and to function on a day-to-day basis is required. Willingness to learn Danish is required from your students.
The mandatory participation in our orientation camp is free of cost for inbound students.
Visa application is online except for fingerprints and photo, which can be done at a Danish Representation in your country, or after arrival if students can enter Schengen without a visa.
Unless otherwise agreed, your district accepts that our students are covered by the Danish Rotary insurance. ( Europæiske ERV ). This insurance has a coverage meeting the requirements of Rotary International, and is approved by RI.
We expect that the education and participation in mandatory meetings are free of cost.
Both sending and receiving districts are properly certified by Rotary International.
All students who are sponsored for exchange by either districts have been carefully selected and adequately oriented.
Applicants and their parents will be personally interviewed by RYE representatives, and the orientation program will include, at a minimum, a discussion of program rules, expectations, support systems, intercultural adaptation and sexual abuse and harassment.
Students must be in good physical and mental health, with no recurring history of medical or psychological problems (e.g. ADHD, Asperger’s, depression, anorexia, bulimia, etc.).
A minimum of at least two host families will be secured for each student. Host families will be appropriately screened, selected and prepared to ensure that they provide an appropriate and welcoming environment for the student. No family may host more than one student simultaneously, except in unusual circumstances.
