Project Exchange is a youth-led, 501c3 non-profit organization increasing access to cross cultural learning experiences for middle & high school students around the globe through digital technology solutions.

We are excited to welcome you to the third cohort of the Digital Exchange Program (DEP), and support you as you embark on the first youth-led, digital learning experience using design thinking, community journalism, and the UN Sustainable Development Goals to strengthen language learning and cross-cultural collaboration! The DEP will run for 12-weeks from April 6-June 26, 2020, and students are asked to dedicate 2-3 hours/week during the exchange. This ensures you'll have enough time to form meaningful connections with your DEP partner while mastering the curriculum.

Apply below before March 27, 2020 at 11:59 pm PST. It should take no longer than 15-20 minutes.
