Australia-Indonesia Youth Exchange Program

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. It is a chance for participants to grow their intercultural skills, professional experiences, and international networks.

In 2022, AIYEP will be offered as a virtual program from 9 November – 29 December hosted by Value Learning. The program is an opportunity for 18 Indonesians and 18 Australians to engage with each other, AIYEP alumni and key people in Australia-Indonesia relations. This includes academics, business leaders, community experts and diplomatic officials.

During the program, participants will undertake virtual work experience, enjoy educational and cultural performances, hear from high-level guest speakers and work collaboratively on a project of relevance to themselves and to the bilateral relationship.

The Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia, His Excellency General the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Retd), is Patron of the Australia-Indonesia Youth Exchange Program.
