AFS Intercultural Programs and the Australia Indonesia Institute are proud to announce that applications are now open for the Australia Indonesia Youth Exchange Program (AIYEP) 2017/2018.

This core program within the Australia Indonesia Institute is now in its 36th year of providing young people with an opportunity to deepen their understanding of Indonesia and a commitment to strengthening the links between our countries. (Indonesian language skills are desirable but not mandatory.)

We are now seeking Australian applicants (aged 21-25), as well as host families and host organisations for 3 week internships in Sydney and the Upper Central Coast/Greater Newcastle area.

Would you like to travel to Indonesia and build your networks, grow your intercultural skills, or bring another culture in to your family or your workplace? Head to for more information. Alternatively you can visit AII’s AIYEP page.

Thanks in advance for your support and interest in this important part of Australian-Indonesian bilateral relations.
