Though cultural immersion, social and professional networking and international fellowship the AJYCE aims to strengthen the relationship and bond between Australia and Japan building a more peaceful and stable region and world.
Cultural immersion - you will spend part of your trip staying with a host family, getting to live as a Japanese person.
Networking -You will get the opportunity to network with various leaders of Japanese industry and communities. Depending on your professional or academic background we will try to facilitate opportunities to create networks in this space. Its not all business either, you will have the opportunity to meet and make friends with many Japanese, from your family, family's community and young adults involved, past and present, with the AJYCE in Japan.
