Thank you for your interest in participating in the Paper Airplanes Youth Exchange Program! Paper Airplanes provides free, one-on-one virtual language and skills instruction to people affected by conflict. Our goal is to help our students learn critical languages and marketable skills for their pursuit of higher education and employment. We currently have five programs: English, Youth Exchange, Turkish, Women in Tech, and Journalism. We are young, energetic, and rapidly growing organization with many opportunities for additional involvement.

The mission of the Youth Exchange Program (YEP) is to provide individualized English tutoring to high school aged conflict affected youth and create a network of schools in touch with and passionate about the refugee crisis.

This application is for high school clubs wishing to participate in the January 2020 term. Our Youth Exchange Program is structured such that tutors can only participate as members of a club at their school, we currently do not accept applications from individual tutors.

Accepted schools will have access to our tutor training, curriculum, matching with students, and ongoing administrative support from members of our organization. There will be a fee for clubs to participate. Please see below for details.

Tutors from these high school clubs will commit to tutoring from January to June. During this time, tutors will meet with their student for 1.5 hours per week over Skype, or any other video-calling service that works for them. Tutor-student pairs have the freedom to schedule their own sessions. Tutors will receive a mandatory training and curriculum to guide these sessions.

Please note that there is a separate application for Tutor Coordinators that needs to be completed along with this application. See section 3 of this application for more information about that.

Club Fundraising Goal
Your high school club will gain access to the online training, four-tiered curriculum, student management, personalized support from our organization throughout the year, and to our High School Club Toolkit.

We do ask that each high school club set a fundraising target of $500 USD per club of 10 tutors ($50 per tutor). This amount may be produced in a number of ways including club dues, fundraising, finding a community sponsor, or any other ideas. We are happy to provide advice and support as needed.

We do not want this cost to prevent any school from participating. Please contact Paper Airplanes Managing Director Gabby Wimer at gabby@paper-airplanes.org if you are concerned that this may be the case for your school, or if you have any further questions.
I understand that my club would be expected to meet this fundraising goal by August 2020. (Electronically sign first and last name) *

Tutor Coordinator Selection
Each school will have a Tutor Coordinator responsible for leading the students from your school. The Tutor Coordinator should be a student, not teachers or staff. Tutor Coordinators will regularly communicate with Paper Airplanes staff. They will lead the tutors through the training and Paper Airplanes resources. They will also track their tutors' tutoring hours and lead discussions in club meetings. The expected time commitment is 5-8 hours per week for the entirety of the school year.

**Please note that we cannot consider school applications if we do not also receive at least one Tutor Coordinator application**

This is a prestigious position. To complete the application process, please have all people from your school interested in being a Tutor Coordinator submit the separate application.
