A word about file formats. 

All Power Point files are in .ppt format, meaning they are editable if you want to change the text of the presentation. 

 

The same files are in pdf format which are MUCH smaller files but not editable unless you have Adobe Acrobat or another pdf editor.  The pdf files are configured to be read by Adobe Reader 8 or higher - if you do not have a version that high you can get a new one for free from Adobe.com.  Speaker's notes can be viewed in the ped versions by using the current version of Adobe Reader and clicking on View>Annotations.  These notes appear at the bottom of the ppt versions.

BEST PRACTICES: REBOUND ORIENTATION

The year long exchange experience is a life changing event for the student and those around them. To best benefit from pre-departure training it is essential they experience a rebound weekend to put it in perspective and progress forward in an optimal manner. Rotary Youth Exchange Florida utilizes a curriculum that has been well received by participants and can serve as a model for other exchanges which either haven’t started this program or wish to improve upon their existing plan.

WHAT IS THIS THING CALLED CULTURE?

Successful adjustment to a new culture offers a challenge to all Rotary Youth Exchange Students – inbound, outbound, and rebound. This session provided attendees with information about culture, and perhaps more importantly a number of useful tools for helping students make the important transition to living abroad. The presenter has been involved with RYE for over 15 years, particularly in the area of cross-cultural training/adjustment, and has lived, worked, and studied on four continents.
