Youth Exchange

The Project ~~~~~~~~~~

Yankalilla Lions Sponsor International Youth Exchange

We welcomed our youths and their leader to the camp at Willow Creek and they were immediately best friends.

 

We arranged trips around our area to showcase our beautiful beaches and countryside. It was sad to farewell them, but they are going to the southeast for the remainder of their trip to Australia. It was a pleasure to meet these amazing people and hope they will return to our country again.

 

South Australia and in particular our clubs were very lucky to have them with us and we will be hosting this camp again for 2 more years. Thanks to all our volunteers who without their assistance we would not have been able to have such a successful camp.

Lions Youth Exchange and International Youth Camps organise the event and the youths were from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, USA, Austria, Malaysia and Mongolia.

 

The purpose is to unite Leo’s and exchange students to travel and meet other young people from different countries and backgrounds, to exchange ideas and form friendships.

 

International Lions clubs sponsor the youths, and they go through a process that involves making sure they are capable to travel and take part in the camp.

This is the first time South Australia has been given the chance to participate in this event.
