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.

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

In 2020-2022, the program operated via online delivery, supporting 18 Australians and 18 Indonesians to come together for a seven-week program of activities, including the completion of a 21 module Global Competence Certificate, a three-week virtual internship, participation in seminars and workshops, working in teams on a social impact project, exploring career development with a designated mentor, improving language skills and fostering friendship with fellow participants.

In 2023, AIYEP will resume in-person programming, which is a very welcome return to business as usual.

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.

AIYEP is currently delivered by Value Learning. For more information, visit the Australia-Indonesia Youth Exchange Program website.
