The youth exchange program of Finnish Rotary is organized by the Rotary multidistrict organization. Every year several exchange students travel abroad and arrive from all over the world. Youth exchange is the most prominent form of our service activities.

Rotex organizes activities for former exchange students. Rotexes assist the multidistrict and districts in guiding outbound students and tutoring inbound exchange students. They can also tutor at summer camps, trips organized by the youth exchange, or at orientation camps for inbound students. Rotex operates under the Finnish Rotary youth exchange multidistrict organization and all rotexes work in compliance with Rotary rules.
