The Lions International Youth Exchange Program was established in 1961 to give youth an opportunity to travel to exciting international destinations for up to 6 weeks.

Whilst overseas, the youth live with one or more families associated with Lions International to experience first-hand a new culture, lifestyle and customs. Unlike some exchange programs, the Lions Youth Exchange Program does not involve tourism, academic studies or employment.

The aim of the program is to create and foster a spirit of understanding among the peoples of the world.

The Lions Youth Exchange Program caters for both inbound and outbound youth exchanges:

Incoming International youth from Europe, North America, New Zealand, South America, Scandinavia, UK, Malaysia, Indonesia and Japan,  arriving in Australia in July-August and December-January. As well as living with one or more Australian families, many visiting exchangees attend an Australian Youth Camp, which provides an opportunity to meet young people from other countries in a fun, camp environment. More information for inbound youth is on our Hosting in Australia page

Outgoing Australian youth travelling overseas in December & January to live with families associated with Lions International in various countries. Lions chaperones are provided at stopovers in London and Los Angeles, and on the return flights to Australia.  Australian Youth Exchange website
