Offers for young people
OSA provides young Swiss people abroad with a wide range of opportunities for visiting Switzerland. We have reserved camp accommodation, found host families and put together educational programmes for those eager to learn. What is particularly exciting about OSA’s projects for young people is the personal contact with youngsters with Swiss heritage but who live all over the world.
The offers for the coming winter
