  • Could you agree with most of these thoughts? • When I look at the application forms and see the kids I sent out last year – and now I see what has happened in this short spell of time, I am always impressed! • They seem to have understood the values of the great Rotary Family. • Their personality seems to have received a major boost. • Many of them have got a much wider horizon and cultural understanding. • They have found their way not only through Chicago, Frankfurt, Sao Paulo Airport, but also through difficult phases in host family, school and with newly gained friends. • And now and then I come across absolutely outstanding young rebounds… • Can I accept that they disappear into Rotarian No-where, far away from Rotary???
  • If all this is true, then I should • not only offer a short „debriefing“ session • offer these young people a chance to stay close to Rotary, the Rotary Family • offer those interested in further contact a field of action, of service • build a trustworthy basis for joint action • help to found a Rotex organisation (if necessary, if not started by the young themselves)
