The Victorian Young Leaders to China (VYLC) Program is a world-class, six-week in-country immersion program for Year 9 students, designed to prepare them to live and work as 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 new 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 in 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 trading partners, China.
To provide flexibility and encourage wide participation across Government, Catholic and Independent schools, three program options are available in 2017.
A limited number of places for the 2017 VYLC Statewide Program (October/November) and the 2017 VYLC Sister School Partnership Program are still available.
Applications open Tuesday 25 October and close Wednesday 9 November 2016.
