Become an Exchange Student!

What is the North Star Youth Exchange?

North Star Youth Exchange encompasses two Rotary districts (5950 and 5960), which are large geographical areas in south-central Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin. The area includes the entire Twin Cities metropolitan area, Rochester, St. Cloud, and Mankato (Duluth is part of the Central States Rotary Youth Exchange program). The outer part of our districts includes Albert Lea, Hayward, WI, Alexandria, and Redwood Falls.

Throughout this area, local Rotary clubs provide this international opportunity to eager, ambitious, and inquisitive high school students — both to come to our area to experience American life, or to go abroad to one of 33 countries around the world.

Become a Host Family!

Opening Your Heart and Home

Without the willingness and sincerity of families who have opened their hearts and homes to students they have never met, the Rotary Youth Exchange Program would not exist.  In an ever-changing world, it is important that we expose our children, our students and ourselves to areas and people unlike us—it’s how we open our eyes to a global community that shares the same hopes and dreams that we do.

In the landscape of today, adults and children alike must learn about others and reaffirm their faith that people from all over the world are good. What better way to do that than becoming a host family?

PolioPlus - Polio Eradication is Our Goal

Posted by Linda Allen on Oct 03, 2012
 ENDPOLIONOW_4pAfter 25 years of hard work, Rotary and its partners are on the brink of eradicating this tenacious disease, but a strong push is needed now to root it out once and for all. It is a window of opportunity of historic proportions.

Reaching the ultimate goal of a polio-free world presents ongoing challenges, not the least of which is a US$535 million funding gap through 2012. Of course, Rotary alone can't fill this gap, but continued Rotarian advocacy for government support can help enormously.

As long as polio threatens even one child anywhere in the world, children everywhere remain at risk. The stakes are that high.

"If we all have the fortitude to see this effort through to the end, then we will eradicate polio."

- Bill Gates

Annual Rose Sale- Another Successful Year!

Posted by Linda Allen on Apr 09, 2012

The Rose Sale has come and gone. Once again the numbers are being tallied and funds are being collected to give to local charities.  This is the Granite Rotary Club's annual fundraiser.  Many wonderful projects and efforts are supported because of this initiative which disperses more than 3,500 dozen roses each year!

Captains Galen Kabe, Mike Sullivan, John Sanner, Bill Bateman, Larry DeGraaf and Bassey Eyo led the charge.

A special thank you to Galen Kahe for all his hard work and extra effort in coordinting this annual event. Many folks dedicated hours and gave up their weekend working overtime to peddle roses. A huge thanks to them. Posters were printed compliments of Bill Carlin. Thanks Bill!

2012 Bone Marrow Drive

Posted by Linda Allen on Apr 09, 2012

Be the Match -- Join Today!
by Linda Allen

For more than a decade the St. Cloud Granite Rotary has sponsored a National Bone Marrow Registry Drive in St. Cloud. This year, for the 2nd time, the club has partnered with the St. Cloud Technical & Community College to conduct this event.

Last year the drive brought in an additional 209 names to the National Registry! The cost to cover the tests and the cost of the 'matching' process is funded each year in part by the Granite Rotary through its annual Rose Sales. Participants complete a simple registration form that includes contact information, health history and then provide a swab of their cheek cells so tissue type can be tested. This quick and easy process provides the ability to match life saving donors to those in need.

Fellow Rotarian, Janet Steinkamp, Dean of Health Sciences and Human Services, has led the charge of coordinating this fantastic effort these past 2 years. Janet credits SCTCC's common theme of community service and the outstanding support of about 45 dental, nursing, and education students who volunteered for last year's success.

Our goal is simple-- each member is asked to bring 2 people along with them to the drive on Wednesday, April 18th. The drive will be held at SCTCC from 11:00- 1:30 in the commons area.

Guidelines for joining the registry:
1) Be between 18-60 years of age
2) Be willing to donate to any patient in need
3) Meet the health guidelines

Let's truly make this a club sponsored event and get involved and help out!

Quote of the Week - Who Said It?

Posted by Linda Allen on Mar 07, 2012

“Whether we are reaching out to those in our own clubs, or reaching halfway across the world, personal involvement has always been fundamental to Rotarian service. When we Lend a Hand, we focus on this personal involvement and we celebrate our shared humanity. Working together, ready and willing to help our brothers and sisters in need, one hand can become many and there is no limit to what the helping hands of Rotary can accomplish.”

 — 2003 International Assembly, Anaheim, California, USA
