Building Bridges Through Virtual International Education

Virtual exchange is online education that brings young people together in virtual classrooms with their peers around the world. These low-cost programs are uniquely capable of reaching those who do not have access to international education. 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.
