​​​​​​​Outbound selection process

​​​​​​​

In order to choose places that our partner districts offer us, Brazilian students go through a selection process, which takes into account, among other aspects, basically their academic performance in the last year attended. The students and their parents or guardians are also screened and interviewed. 

We will only send students who have the commitment, maturity, emotional stability, adaptability, academic motivation, and personal characteristics to not only succeed on an exchange but also to serve as ambassadors.

Presential training

Each outbound student we send to a district will meet Rotary International certification requirements for sending an outbound student.

Preparing our outbounds for the great experience of their lives and making it as smooth and fruitful as possible is one of the pillars that has always supported our exchange program, in more than 40 years of good services, and made it a success, being highly respected by the community and pride of our district.

Over the course of approximately 18 months, our outbounds and parents undergo 6 orientation training meetings, where all the bureaucratic aspects of enrolling these students are addressed and a video is provided to them with help to complete the Application Form. The orientation program also covers conduct procedures, relevant cultural aspects of each of the countries of the partner districts that must be taken into account; Rotary program rules; expectations of students and their parents and guardians; Rotary support system; and sexual abuse and harassment.

​​​​​​​These 6 orientation training meetings are carefully spaced so those who are still candidates may have homework assignments. We believe that learning by doing is much better than learning by listening to other people, so in those time gaps between face-to-face orientations, our students receive assignments through an e-learning platform.

​​​​​​​The purpose of starting our orientations so early is that we want our candidates to receive the three types of content necessary to prepare for the exchange and become peacemakers: skills, concepts and procedures.

​​​​​​​Therefore, during the training period, our candidates are encouraged to develop volunteer projects by joining Interact clubs in their cities, participating in the events of their sponsor Rotary Club, in addition to studying the language and culture of their host countries, learning to cook, and so on.
