Virtual exchange is online education that brings young people together in virtual classrooms with their peers around the world.

Virtual exchange combines technology and curriculum to give young people cross-cultural competency and 21st century skills—language, collaboration, digital literacy, and problem-solving—to navigate an increasingly interconnected world.
