The Central Indiana Rotary District 6560 is seeking individuals who are interested in joining the 2008 Group Study Exchange (GSE) to Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. This unique cultural and vocational exchange offers young business professionals the opportunity to travel for a memorable and life changing four week tour all expenses-paid.

The GSE program is design to have an invaluable impact on the career of young professionals in the increasingly global workplace by creating networking opportunities and lifelong friendships.
