Victorian Young Leaders to China Program
The Victorian Young Leaders to China (VYLC) Program is an award winning, six-week in-country immersion program for Year 9 students, designed to prepare them to live and work as global citizens and future leaders in an inter-connected global community.
The initiative contributes to Victoria as the Education State by developing the students' global competencies. Furthermore, this initiative supports the Victorian Government’s China Strategy - Partnerships for Prosperity, by developing the capabilities and knowledge of students to engage with Asia.
The program is a life-changing opportunity for students and teachers to live and attend school in China. Combining language and cultural learning with personal development and leadership skills, the program focuses on one of Australia's main regional and global partners, China.
To provide flexibility and encourage wide participation across Government, Catholic and Independent schools, three program options are available. Applications for 2019 are now open.
