Rotary hosting procedures in our district
Arrival and return home
Arrival - Your student must purchase tickets directly to Guarulhos – Cumbica, the main international airport in São Paulo, the capital of our state. There will be at least one member of the RYE committee waiting for the inbound student or the student's host family.
Return home - The return will be via the same international airport, where the host family agrees to take your student directly at the end of the stay.
Your student will be hosted by a minimum of 3 families and a maximum of 4, who genuinely want to host an inbound student and will welcome and support your student.
We will provide all host families with at least annual training on being a host family. This training will include youth protection information and specific information in dealing with likely cultural differences in hosting a student from your country.
Host families must host only one student at the same time and the student has to have one private bedroom.
