Supporting Rotary exchange in Perth, Western Australia

Our Team of Past Rotary Exchange Students

With our shared Rotary Exchange experience, Rotex members provide support and guidance to current students and host Rotary Clubs alike.

About us

We focus on supporting current students, and promoting the Rotary Exchange program.

Moving across the world, immersing yourself in a new culture, and learning a new language is incredible, challenging, and daunting – especially at the age of 16 or 17.

Having undertaken this ourselves, Rotex is here to support the current students and to spread the word of this great program to prospective future students!

In addition, Rotex partners with Rotary clubs to help with their projects, fundraisers and volunteers, and provides assistance to the community.
