The Australia Indonesia Youth Exchange Program (AIYEP), established in 1982, links youth (21-25 years old) in Australia and Indonesia through social, professional and cultural exchange. Participants have the opportunity to travel in Indonesia and Australia, stay with a host family, get involved in the local community and build relationships between our two, neighbouring countries. It is a chance for participants and their hosts to grow their intercultural skills, professional experiences and international networks. For more information click one of the links above.
AIYEP runs from October through to February every year, with Australian participants committing to two months in Indonesia from December to February. In 2018-2019 the Australian host city state was Victoria, with Melbourne and the Bendigo region as the urban and regional hosts. In Indonesia the AIYEPers were hosted in Riau Province, Sumatra. Announcements for AIYEP38’s host locations and applications will be made in the first half of 2019, so follow our social media (presently @AIYEP37 on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter) and this website to learn more!
