Atlantis Utveksling (Atlantis Exchange in English) organizes cultural exchange programs in Norway for young foreigners who would like to work as working guests in agriculture or tourism, trainees in agriculture, or as au pairs. Norwegians can volunteer in Africa, Asia and Latin-America.

Atlantis Utveksling is a foundation established by the Norwegian Youth Council in 1987. Our goal is to promote respect and understanding between cultures through international exchange programs. We have specialized in work experience programs and volunteer programs for people between 18 and 30 years of age.

Working guest and Au pair

The programs are based on the idea of working for free board and lodging, while experiencing the Norwegian culture and living with a Norwegian hosts. All participants receive weekly pocket money.

We require all participants to apply through one of our partner organizations, thus to apply for our programs you have to contact one of our partner organizations in your home country. All participants must pay an administrative fee to Atlantis Utveksling and the Sending organization in their home country.

You can find a list of our partners under each exchange program.

If there is no such organization in your home country, you are not able to apply for the program. We do not answer inquiries directly from applicants. All requests for information should be directed towards one of our partner organizations.
