The 8th Asian Youth Forum

The Asian Youth Forum
Seoul, South Korea
October 13-20, 2010

The Asian Youth Forum is an international youth event which brings together college-aged young people from across Asia for academic seminars, intercultural workshops, social events and interpersonal exchanges. The aims of the AYF are to promote international understanding, intercultural communication and leadership skills through the medium of English-as-an-international-language. Previous AYF events have been held in Korea (1999), Japan (2001), Taiwan (2002), Russia (2004), Thailand (2007), Japan (2008), and Philippines (2009). The 2010 AYF will be held in Seoul, South Korea on October 13-20, 2010.



The AYF organizing committee would like to thank all those who applied for the 2010 AYF summit this fall in Seoul, South Korea. Your application to AYF is already in itself a manifestation that our young people are trying their best to be agents of change. We are however unable to accept everyone who submitted their application for reasons as finance and logistics.

We have already notified the successful applicants and we have sent them their letter of acceptance. If you have not received a request to join, we regret to inform you that you were not able to be considered for AYF this year.  We had to choose only 80 people from a large pool of 300 applicants. 

We wish to thank all those who took the effort and submitted their applications and we hope that those people who could not join us this year can do so possibly next year. Even if you were not accepted to join the conference, you can still take part and support AYF in whatever ways you can. Please do not hesitate to contact us. To those who were accepted, congratulations and we are looking forward to seeing you this October. Please be informed that the committee will not entertain inquiries regarding the results of the screening.
