The Australia-China Youth Association is the only youth-administered NGO run for its members, by its members. We work to actively foster a transnational community of young Australians and Chinese interested in furthering understanding of each other’s countries.
Focusing chiefly on young people between the ages of 18 to 30, ACYA’s objectives are to facilitate and develop lasting bilateral friendships, partnerships and opportunities across a variety of social sectors - including, but not limited to: business, academia, government, sport and the arts.
