Youth Exchange Program

2019 Exchanges

During July, I had the honor to represent District 24-L in Australia through the Lions Youth Exchange program. I spent 3 weeks with a host family in the state of Victoria and 1 week at Camp Koala in Queenscliff. I had the opportunity to see many kangaroos and koalas! During this trip, I rock climbed, tree surfed, and whale watched. My host family was fantastic and took me to many sights around Australia. At camp, I was with 30 other people who were from 15 different countries. I have made many new friends and hopefully they can visit the U.S. and I can visit them in their country!"
