    • 2Pre-Convention 2014 Kim-Sophie Feder • Outbound Student to District 6540, USA in 2009/10 • Rebound • Active Member of ROTEX 1800 •A Level Exams(Highschool) • Student University Berlin • RAC Berlin (applied for membership) Ekkehard Musick • Highschool Principal, retired • Rotary Club Gifhorn-Wolfsburg • RYEX Chair District 1800, District Protection Officer
    • Pre-Convention 2014 „I want to give back something to Rotary as a thank-you for an awesome year!“
    • 4Pre-Convention 2014 Traditional Structure of YEX-Team on District Level •Chairperson • Inbound Coordinator LTEP • Outbound Coordinator LTEP • STEP Coordinator LTEP at first 15 – 20 in- & outbounds Now 60 – 70 In- & outbounds STEP 30 – 40 Participants  Summercamp
    • 5Pre-Convention 2014 Problems : • Workload • more important: as a Rotarian I would always be the authoritative person in the program – how could I reach the inbounds on a trustworthy basis? • Will today´s youngsters turn to a person 60 plus, if they need help? • Will today´s youngsters turn to a person 60 plus in delicate matters? • Will our inbounds turn to a Rotarian, if they feel the local Rotarians are biased against them? • Will one of our inbounds turn to his YEO, Counsellor, District Chair, if he has broken one of our rules, but now needs support, help?
    • 6Pre-Convention 2014 An even more important problem: In our LTEP and STEP we meet wonderful young people, often with amazing potential. We invite them into the Rotary family – and then we seem to forget about them. On club level, we might invite them for a Club meeting to give a lively report of the exchange year in another culture… And after that, with the end of the school career they seem to disappear into Rotarian No-where.
