Lion Youth Exchange Program Information Session

Date(s): Jan 11, 2019
Time: 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

The Atlanta Lions Club is hosting an information session about Lions Club International Youth Exchange Camp (YEC) Program.

Join us to learn about opportunities to TRAVEL ABROAD or to HOST an international student coming to our Atlanta Camp this summer. Info session is for parents and teens. Pizza will be served. Please click on eVite link to RSVP.

Lions Club International holds over 100 youth exchange camps for ages 15-22 each year all over the world. Participants travel to another country as a “youth ambassador” representing their home country. Every camp is unique with different themes, activities, and age range. Most camps also include a 1-2 week host family stay. Visit the Youth Exchange Directory to see map of all camps. Click on a yellow location pin to view camp information.

In the past two years, we have sponsored Atlanta youth visiting France, Austria, Norway, Netherlands, Denmark, Estonia, Australia, and Republic of Georgia. We plan to sponsor 12 Atlanta-area youth to travel abroad this summer. To participate, you must be sponsored by a local Lions Club. Our application deadline is February 8, so begin researching where you want to go now. (Once we’ve received 12 applications, additional applicants will be put on a wait list.)

We are also looking for families to HOST international students for 1-2 weeks this summer. We are currently hosting two Australians for January and we’d love you to meet Emma and Oliver to hear about their experiences in the US.
