JOYST Youth Exchange International is a non-governmental organization established to promote cultural exchange and work abroad programmes designed to encourage student growth through experiences of other cultures and lifestyles during their summer holidays.
On a JOYST Youth programme, you have the chance to experience the real everyday working life of a country and explore some of the world’s most amazing places during your stay. You can also become involved in voluntary services at local organizations whilst working and traveling.,Whichever programme you choose, you’ll be in a different culture, gaining job and life skills, and meeting a whole new circle of friends in what has the potential to be one of your most fun-filled, memorable and life-changing experiences ever.
Why Work and Travel?
It is through traveling that we learn about other peoples’ way of life and travel provides the sort of education you will never get in the classroom. In addition, employers are always impressed with the students who have acquired experience abroad. Over the years, our young people have used the work and travel programmes as one of the channel used to obtain experience and exposure.
