Young people between 15 and 20 are invited to participate in the AFS Hong Kong Summer Exchange Programmes.

Through the AFS Year Programme, students live for a year with a host family and attend a local school in a foreign country.

Participants in this year's Summer Exchange Programmes can spend their holidays in Australia, Canada, Switzerland, New Zealand, Japan or France.

Or they can broaden their horizons through Language Home Stay or Environmental Work Programmes.

The programmes are part of AFS' inter-cultural exchanges to encourage understanding and they bring together people from 60 countries around the world.

The number of places is limited and candidates may be required to go through a selection process.

For further information, contact Iris Chao on 2802 0383.

The deadline for applications is March 31.
