Exchange helps members develop leadership, networking, and organizational skills that contribute to success in business, family and personal endeavors. More importantly, Exchange provides members with the opportunity to share their time and talents to help others, whether by reaching out to an abused child who needs love and affection or organizing a community crime prevention program or wielding rakes in a clean-up project. Through these and many other positive, public-spirited projects, Exchangites are making a real difference in cities and towns across America. Help build a better America, and in doing so, bring out the best in yourself!
Exchange’s Programs of Service
During the 1940s, Exchange had organized its club activities around seven areas of service that included: education; agriculture; aviation; citizenship; commerce and industry; federal youth rehabilitation; youth and geriatrics.
In the mid 1960s, Exchange adopted its National Programs of Service. Also known as the four “pillars” of Exchange, the National Programs of Service brought into greater focus the most pressing issues of the day and affords local clubs the ability to structure activities according to their specific community. The programs include: Americanism, Youth Programs, Community Service and our national project-–the Prevention of Child Abuse.
