Kildare/Lexington Student Exchange Programme 2020

Kildare / Lexington Student Exchange Programme 2020

County Kildare has been twinned with Lexington, Fayette County, Kentucky, U.S.A. since 1984.  One of the most successful aspects of our twinning with Lexington has been our annual student exchange.  This affords Kildare students the opportunity to spend time in Lexington and to welcome a student into their home in return.  The exchange takes place in June and July each year for approximately 7 – 10 days.

An adult chaperone accompanies the students and usually Kildare students go to Lexington first with their U.S. counterparts coming here shortly after the Kildare students return home.

The exchange is supported financially by Kildare County Council.  In addition to the financial support from Kildare County Council there will be a fee payable by each student which will be between €750 and €850, depending on flight costs.

So, if you...

  • have your parent(s)/guardian(s) consent to partake in the exchange
  • will be over 16 on 1 June 2020
  • would like to experience life with a family in the U.S.
  • would like to have a great holiday in Lexington, Kentucky
  • can welcome a student back into your home

Then register your interest by emailing or call Ciara on 045 980660.

Participating in the exchange is a fantastic opportunity to have a great summer and make new friends - so don’t delay, register your interest now!
