International Youth Exchange program is back.
Following a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19, the International Youth Exchange (IYE) program has returned and is accepting applications.
This program gives the children (ages 14 to 19) of airline families the opportunity to travel abroad and immerse themselves in a new culture. The teens are paired up and each resides in the other’s home for a four-week period, spending time with the respective family, learning about their peer’s culture and improving their foreign language skills.
Since 1996, IYE has matched nearly 7,000 youths, helping foster lifelong friendships for participants.
Exchanges are available in: Canada, United States, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, The Netherlands, United Kingdom and Australia.
