USA Train Tour

Rotary YES/SCANEX USA Train Tour was founded by Paul R. St. John as a way for those Rotary Youth Exchange Students who completed their high school year in the USA successfully to see more than just the area around their host club.

The tour is based on a 30-day rail pass for foreign passport holders and makes approximately 15 stops. Overnight homestays with Rotary families are planned to cover four distinctly different regions of the USA. Hotels, youth hostels and public transportation is used whenever possible. The tour is paid for by the students.

    I am a host parent who has a “son” that would like to go on his trip. He has the ability to pay, but we are trying to arrange a couple of other trips and wonder what the dates for the 2014 trip might be? Also where to they meet to start the trip and where does it end? Does he return to our district prior to going home?

      Hi Tracey and thank you for your note. Congrats on joining Rotary! The train tour is for Rotary Youth Exchange students, and not Rotaractors.
