You ask what is a short term exchange?  
Short-term exchanges last from several days to three months and are often structured as camps, tours, or homestays that take place when school is not in session whereas Long-term exchanges last a full academic year, and students attend local schools and live with multiple host families.
The benefits for exchange students are many. They unlock their true potential to develop lifelong leadership skills, learn a new language and culture, they build lasting friendships with young people from around the world becoming global citizens.
Exchanges for students ages 15-19 are sponsored by Rotary clubs in more than 100 countries.
