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:

The Book Club meeting with Leila & Rain Chudori was well attended. The discussion was preceded by a very yummy Indonesian lunch. We talked about Leila’s Laut Bercerita and Rain’s Imaginary City. There were a number of interesting questions from the audience.
