Recruitment Begins For Rotary Group Study Exchange Between Alaska/Yukon And Matto Grosso Dol Sol, Brazil
(August 1, 2012 – Fairbanks) Young professionals working in the field of water and sanitation are invited to apply for Rotary District 5010’s 2013 Group Study Exchange (GSE) to District 4470 in Brazil, May 20 – June 20, 2013. The GSE will take place next spring as D5010 participants travel from Alaska and the Yukon to Brazil, and a similar team from D4470 travels here.
According to Rotary International, the GSE is a unique cultural and vocational exchange opportunity for business and professional men and women in the early years of their careers. The program is designed to develop professional and leadership skills among young people to better prepare them to address the needs of their communities and an increasingly global workplace. It also furthers the goal of Rotary to improve world understanding and peace.
Applicants must be between the ages of 25 and 40, be “in profession” for at least two years (in order to fully benefit from the program), and work in a field related to water and sanitation, but not limited to:
- Environmental engineers and/or scientists working in the water and wastewater field;
- Water and/or wastewater utility managers or operators;
- Environmental health professionals working in water and wastewater regulatory and enforcement positions;
- Water and sanitation equipment manufacturers or vendors.
Applications are due to a local Rotary club by August 30, 2012.
