Travel by a Rotary Youth Exchange student will only be permitted under the following general conditions:
Travel LESS than 24 hours duration, you need:
Inside Colorado: Host parent approval
Outside Colorado: Host parent approval, host club notified
Travel GREATER than 24 hours duration, you need:
Inside Colorado: Host parent approval, host club notified
Outside Colorado: Host parent approval, host club counselor approval, District 5470 country contact notified, travel permission forms completed and approved by the CGC (Club Group Coordinator) OR YEO (Youth Exchange Officer).
UNACCOMPANIED TRAVEL is not normally allowed: occasionally exceptions are allowed under special circumstances. It is understood that the host parents will verify all plans and itinerary for the travel by personal conversation with the adult accompanying the student. There must be an individual at the destination who assumes full responsibility for the student, and who has been approved by the Natural Parents, Host Parents, the Host Rotary Club and Host District Chair. UNAUTHORIZED TRAVEL MAY RESULT IN THE STUDENT BEING RETURNED HOME.
