Youth Exchange – the 4 D’s or the 6 B’s ?

As anyone familiar with the Rotary Youth Exchange program knows, exchange students are subject to rules known as the 4 D’s:

1. No drinking
2. No drugs
3. No driving
4. No dating

But here a great twist to this. Thanks to Gillian Leek (spouse of PDG Bob Leek, D7090) who heard this idea presented at the Montreal Pre-Convention Youth Exchange meeting, here is a focus on the positive. And what a great recipe for a good exchange experience, and in fact for a great life: the 6 B’s:

1. Be First
2. Be Curious
3. Be on Purpose
4. Be Grateful
5. Be of Service
6. Be Here Now

Thanks Gillian!
