What is GSE - Group Study Exchange

The Group Study Exchange (GSE) program of The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International is
a unique cultural and vocational exchange opportunity for young business and professional men
and women between the ages of 25 and 40 in the initial years of their professional life. The program provides travel grants for teams of participants to exchange visits between paired areas in different countries. For four to six weeks, team members study the host country’s institutions and ways of life, observe their own vocations as practiced abroad, develop personal and professional relationships, and exchange ideas. Team members can come from corporations, small businesses, community organizations, medical and educational facilities, government offices, and nonprofit agencies.

For 2009, the District 5710 GSE team will be traveling to the Philippines and the Philippine team will be visiting our District. Be sure to follow their progress on this blog.
