Lions Clubs International Youth Exchange Program

Open to all students between the ages of 15 ½ - 21.

Since 1961 Lions Clubs have been sending as many students as possible around the world to experience another culture in the hopes of bringing about peaceful relations and a better understanding of the rest of the world. Our thousands of ambassadors, who do not have to come from Lions members, are picked, not for their scholastic ability, but for their desire to learn about another culture.

We encourage all students from around the United States to participate in our largest escorted program to Japan. We also exchange for a 4-5 week summer program to countries in Europe and elsewhere around the world.
