The Rotary Youth Exchange Challenge is a fantastic opportunity for young people to immerse themselves in another culture, make lifelong friends and develop a deeper understanding of our world and global community.
As a Project Partner of Rotary International, ShelterBox is thrilled to be involved with this amazing program. ShelterBox provides disaster relief aid for people affected by disasters and humanitarian crises in countries all over the world. Our experiences have made us fully recognise the benefits of communicating well with and understanding other cultures.
The ShelterBox Youth Exchange Challenge
ShelterBox’s Youth Exchange Challenge is an exciting opportunity for participants of the program to develop their skills in several areas, including public speaking and make a real difference to communities across the globe.
To be awarded your pin badge, you must complete two challenges:
• Spread the word: Give a presentation about ShelterBox. This could be at your host Rotary Club, a school, or a group such as the Scouts.
• Fundraise for ShelterBox: A cake sale, a karaoke evening or a raffle, be creative! Any amount will help provide emergency shelter and vital aid to families in need.
Taking part in these two challenges will enable you to discover more about ShelterBox and hopefully the culture you are visiting. You can also be sure that your involvement will benefit a family affected by a disaster or humanitarian crisis somewhere in the world.
To help people around the world, ShelterBox needs to make people aware of who we are, what we do and why our work is not only important, but necessary.
Why not help us do this?
Challenge 1: Spread the word
As a Rotary Youth Exchange student, you will have great skills to inspire your host community by raising awareness about ShelterBox and its disaster relief work worldwide.
Get out there and encourage people to get involved!
Challenge 2: Fundraise for ShelterBox
Every donation we receive, large and small, will be invaluable to a family who have lost everything. Whatever you do, every penny counts - making a difference couldn’t be easier!
After you’ve raised your funds, you can pay in at our donations page.
