Description

RadioRotary co-hosts Sarah O’Connell–Claitor and Jonah Triebwasser interview Millbrook High School student Joe Richard about his year spent in Germany as part of the Rotary Youth Exchange Program. Participants are generally high-school students and are sponsored by a Rotary Club to spend a school year abroad in a country with a different language from their native tongue, living with local families and attending a local school. Mr. Richard lived with three different families and attended school in Lüneburg, Germany, a small city 35 miles southeast of Hamburg. Mr. Richard, who plays the tenor saxophone, not only joined his school’s big swing band, but also became a part of several local ensembles, helping him assimilate as he also learned German, his coursework, and the customs of Germany.
