Hong Kong exchange program applications close 28 August 2017

A unique exchange program will give seven young Western Australians the chance to take a one-of-a-kind trip to Hong Kong in 2018. Applications close on Monday 28 August 2017.

The program is open to people aged between 18 and 25. Young people from regional areas as well as those with Aboriginal and multicultural backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

Successful applicants will meet delegates from Hong Kong and participate in activities in Perth in October 2017, before travelling to Hong Kong in February 2018.

The program will provide young people with the chance to develop self-confidence, build international networks, gain an understanding of different cultures and provide a base for future career goals.

The International Youth Exchange Program will further strengthen relations between China and WA and is an initiative of the Western Australian State Government and the Home Affairs Bureau of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government.

To find out more or to apply, visit the program page at the Youth Affairs Council of Western Australia website.
