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.
