  6. 6. 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???
  7. 7. 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)
  8. 8. Integration into running exchange program Outbound: Outbound Selection Weekend Outbound training How to cope with homesickness Student Protection Policy: Harrassment & Abuse (Strategies) Cultural Learning (Report of one´s own experience; culture oriented)
  9. 9. Inbounds Integration into Welcome Weekend Host District Joint District:Rotex Host Parent Information Day After internal training: possibility to organize Rotex Weekends in the name of Host District Example : Candle light talk Eurotour (with Rotary Chaperone)
  10. 10. Integration into Interact (poss. Founding of Interact Clubs)  Transport of Internationality into Interact Club ( at Rebound´s own school?)  Cultural Learning ( report on rebound´s own exchange experience)  Creation of Interest in Ideal of Service  Creation of Interest in Exchange Experience (LTEP & STEP)
