The department said Australia and Indonesia established the program in 1981 to promote cross-cultural understanding and exchange among young Australians and Indonesians. "It provides an opportunity for participants to experience first-hand the culture and society of each country."
 
Participants will take part in work placements, cultural performances, and visits to local schools and communities in Indonesia. They will live with local host families. Indonesian participants will undertake a similar program in Australia.
 
They will also work on a development project in a rural and remote village, working with local communities on business and entrepreneurship, youth and education, and women's empowerment activities.
 
AIYEP is for young people with a desire to deepen their understanding of Indonesia and a commitment to strengthening the links between our countries. Indonesian language skills are desirable but not mandatory.
 
Application forms and further information are available online at https://dfat.smartygrants.com.au/AIYEP201718.
 
AIYEP is a core program of the Australia-Indonesia Institute, an Australian government body administered by Foreign Affairs. The program is run in partnership with the Indonesian Ministry for Youth and Sport, which coordinates the program in Indonesia.
