Project description

The Australia Indonesia Youth Association (AIYA) is the peak non-government, youth-led organisation aiming to better connect young Indonesians and Australians to each other and to Australia-Indonesia related opportunities. With chapters in every state and territory of Australia and in five Indonesian provinces, AIYA creates a network of young people by facilitating socio-cultural, educational and professional programs to inform and inspire youth in both countries. In total, AIYA Chapters now hold over 225 large and small events annually. AIYA aims to grow its presence at the chapter level and to continue to build its online presence as the peak youth-targeted outlet for those interested in the bilateral relationship. On average, AIYA hosts four events per week that offer incredible variety and have a high impact across both countries. Run by a team of over 120 volunteers, its activities reach thousands of young Australians and Indonesians each year, forging long term relationships which continue to strengthen bilateral engagement at all levels.
