 Youth Exchange

      The Wimberley Lions Club (WLC) Youth Exchange Program provides an opportunity for juniors and seniors at Wimberley High School and Katherine Ann Porter Charter School to travel abroad to experience a Lions International Youth Exchange Camp and a host family experience. Applications will be delivered to the two schools by October 1 with a deadline of November 6th at 12:00 noon. Students with complete applications are selected for interviews in early November.

      Students selected for the five (5) grant funded positions and other, non-grant students go through a rigorous orientation to the YE Program, starting in December, with expectations and instructions for completing the YE camp applications. Each student applicant selects three camps and must provide required documentation for their YE camp application. Applications to the YE camps are sent in February to the primary camp selection for each student. Once accepted to a camp, the YE student will have additional camp documents to complete. Grant funded students get their airline tickets funded up to $2000. Camp fees and other related fees (travel insurance, U.S. passport, etc.) are the responsibility of the YE student.

     The Lions International YE Camps in the northern hemisphere (Europe, Far East countries, etc.) operate in the Summer months (June through August). Southern hemisphere YE camps (e.g., New Zealand, Australia, etc.) occur during the Winter months (December, January, etc.). Returning Summer YE students have an opportunity to participate in a video interview and give a short report at the second WLC meeting in August.
