Youth & Educational Exchanges

The Youth Ambassador Student Exchange and Citizenship Through Sports Exchange are at the core of AIFL’s future leadership delegations.

Program Overview

The conferences, workshops and educational seminars within these programs provide the framework for enduring bi-national ties. Through these activities we change perceptions of high school students – our future leaders – changing lives and building a network of enduring support and understanding.
