Chris is a longtime Rotary International exchange student champion, who has been involved in numerous Rotary international projects for over 20 years.

Members of the club, Rotarians from the area and Rotary International District 5510 representatives, enjoyed sharing stories about Arizona culture.

At the social, the Brazil Team had an opportunity to meet World War II veteran and Rotarian, Retired U.S. Army Col. Park Shaw.

New Generations Exchanges provide an opportunity for young professionals to learn about a different culture while fostering goodwill and understanding, meeting new friends and forming international friendships.

The program recognizes the positive change implemented by youth and young adults through leadership development activities, involvement in community and international service projects, and exchange programs that enrich and foster world peace and cultural understanding.

The Rotary Club of Scottsdale is committed to involving youth and young adults in its vocational, community, and international service projects, and to providing programs and resources that support them.

The club has a rich history and deep commitment to supporting New Generation’s programs including Interact, Rotaract, RYLA, Youth Exchange, Youth Salute, Rotary Peace Fellows, and now the relatively new New Generation’s Service Exchange.

The Rotary Club of Scottsdale meetings are held at noon with a buffet lunch at Scottsdale’s McCormick Lakeside Ballroom, 7401 N. Scottsdale Road, in Scottsdale.
