Australia-Indonesia Youth Exchange Program

The Australia-Indonesia Youth Exchange Program (AIYEP) is a one of a kind, highly successful program marking its 36th year this year.

Eighteen young Indonesians aged 21–25 spend two months (October–December) in Australia undertaking work placements, homestays, cultural performances and visits to local schools and communities. Eighteen young Australians undertake a similar program in Indonesia with their Indonesian counterparts from December to February.

The program aims to provide opportunities for young people from Indonesia and Australia to gain a better understanding of the culture, development and way of life of each other's country. AIYEP alumni form a vibrant group whose members have gone on to work in areas with a continuing involvement in the bilateral relationship.

For further information including AIYEP contacts please visit the AFS website.
