Rotex needs a “code of honor”Philipp Sander
After attending the “Beyond the 4 D’s” workshop at the Rotary International Convention 2017 in Atlanta, Georgia, we got tasked with developing a “Code of Honour” for Rotary Youth Exchange students.
While the 4 D’s will still apply, Rotary would like to set new guidelines from more of a peer-to-peer standpoint which encapsulate the responsibility required and expected of a student partaking in a Rotary Youth Exchange. Essentially, Rotary would like a friendlier and more practical way to talk about the rules of exchange, as opposed to the current list of “don’t’s” that Rotarians dictate to students.
We are therefore looking for some guidelines, rules, or personal goals that students should remember whilst on exchange. These can be single words or short sentences, and either something you’ve discussed and documented amongst your club and district or simply something that you yourself have just thought up.
We will take all ideas into consideration and plan to come up with a short, catchy way to represent the proper morals and expectations that we have of our students.
Any input, no matter how big or small, is extremely helpful, and we’d love to hear what our greater Rotex family has to say, especially from different cultural standpoints.
Please send us a message on Facebook or email us at contact@rotex-internationa
We look forward to working with you while we give the 4 D’s a more upbeat facelift and can’t wait to share the new Code of Honour for Rotary Youth Exchange with all of you in the coming weeks!
