Finland welcomes to Lions Youth Exchange

International Youth Exchange (YE) is one of the most important activities of 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”


Our host families have opened theirs homes doors just to you! We are waiting to see you soon here in Finland. Welcome to find Finland and our Lions Youth Exchange!
