Inbound Student Information
Dear Inbound Student:
We would like to welcome you to the Ohio-Erie Multidistrict for the coming year. Ohio-Erie has been in existence and exchanging students for more than 30 years. The Ohio-Erie Multi-district serves six states and the province of Ontario, Canada. The states include: Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, and North Carolina. District 6380 serves a portion of Michigan and a portion of the Province of Ontario. Districts 6630, 6600, 6690, and 6670 serve the state of Ohio. District 6740 serves the Eastern portion of Kentucky. District 7530 serves the north-east quadrant of West Virginia. The Eastern half of Tennessee is served by District 6780. Districts 7670 and 7680 serve Eastern North Carolina.
Each of our districts is unique, and, whichever district in which you have been assigned will do their best to assure that you have an outstanding youth exchange year. Once you are assigned a district we encourage you to begin your research about your home away from home. Geographies and cultures vary from district to district. Each state’s history is colorful and varied. If you live in Michigan or Ohio, you will be a Northerner. In West Virginia you will be considered an Easterner and if you live in Kentucky, Tennessee or North Carolina, you will be a Southerner. Each of these designations highlights a unique American experience with significant changes in culture and language.
The documents below should be downloaded and read prior to your departure to begin your exchange in one of the Ohio-Erie districts.

We encourage you to check out information on the state or province in which you will be doing the exchange. Of interest to you will be information about the city and school in which you will live and attend. The history, geography and culture of the state or province will give you a preview of what you. The major industries and agricultural areas will provide you with the economies that drive the culture. And, of course, you will want to know something of the politics and religious heritage of the area.
We know you are excited and filled with expectations about your year as a Rotary Youth Exchange Ambassador from your country. As you learn about us, we want to learn about you and your country. Be prepared to be the ambassador of your country. Know that you are welcome and most importantly, know that we are looking forward to your coming and want you to have the OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME.
