Finland welcomes to Lions Youth Exchange

International Youth Exchange (YE) is one of the most important activities of the Finnish Lions (MD 107). Since 1960s Finnish Lions Clubs have sent and hosted thousands and again thousands of young people to and from all continents of the world. Late 90s the Finnish YE made about 10% of all the world’s Lions YE.

The Finnish Youth Exchange Program invites youth from the whole world to experience the spirit of “WE SERVE” with the Finnish people and the Finnish Lions. Our host families want to be most generous to their guests. They are ready to open their homes for you. With the international youth in the Finnish Lions Camps, you can find out new friends, new cultures and new ways for your own and our common future.

You can apply for the Finnish Youth Exchange program through the Lions Clubs of your own country. Your candidacy must be approved by your sponsoring club and the application must be forwarded through the Lions organisation to the YCED MD107 Finland.

We are updating these home pages continuously. There are links to "Finnish YE Program" and "Youth Exchange Chairpersons”

Welcome to find Finland and our Lions Youth Exchange!
