Early Returns


Published on

The early returns have always sparked a number of concerns. First, we need to reflect on what we are doing in the program: Have we trained our students and our team well to participate in a multicultural process? Have we selected our students well? Have we offered support to young people? Have we used the social media (Skype, WhatsApp, HangOut and others) to reduce impacts caused by the program or have we used it in a powerful and negative way with our young people? And about counselors and host families? The importance to have psychologist to follow some cases. Examples for sharing and increase more our thoughts and concepts about early returns.

  3. 3. 2018 YEO Preconvention Wonder why you didn´t hear about an issue until it became a problem? Maybe the student thinks they will be in trouble if they say something. Do Rotarians unwittingly close communication channels? Can we act and speak differently so that student will feel safe reaching to us BEFORE an issue becomes a problem? How to avoid EARLY RETURN?
