Australia-Indonesia Youth Exchange Program (AIYEP)
AIYEP is a one of a kind, highly successful program which is now marking its 31st year. Eighteen young Indonesians aged 21-25 spend two months (October to December) in Australia undertaking work placements, home stays, cultural performances and visits to local schools and communities. Eighteen young Australians undertake a similar program in Indonesia from December to February. The program aims to provide wider opportunities for young people from Indonesia and Australia to appreciate the culture, development and way of life of each other's country and to build groups of young and potentially influential people in both Australia and Indonesia who have knowledge and personal experience of the two countries and who develop close and enduring links with each other.
