Dear Balai Bahasa Indonesia (ACT) member

This year the Australia-Indonesia Youth Exchange Program (AIYEP) will take place in Canberra and Brisbane.  The organisers of the AIYEP program are interested in hearing from BBI (ACT) members who would be willing to provide a host family experience for a young Indonesian exchange participant in October and/or provide temporary work experience in a workplace such as a school, business, community organisation and government department.  AIYEP organisers are looking for both host homes and host organisations in Canberra to welcome AIYEPers into their lives.  Details of the host family and workplace experience opportunities may be found in the attached flyers.

  • Host families are needed from the afternoon of 13 October to the morning of 1 November, 2019
  • Host organisations are needed from 14 October to 31 October

Should you be interested in providing a place at home or in your organisation for an Indonesian exchangee, please contact the AIYEP project manager directly as follows:

Dr Elly Kent
Project Manager – Australia Indonesia Youth Exchange Program (AIYEP)

Phone: +61(0)403549284

Balai Bahasa Indonesia (ACT) fully supports the aims of the AIYEP as a practical and experience-rich activity to strengthen people-to-people relations between our two countries.

Best regards
