Our virtual exchange programs connect high school students around the world using dynamic digital platforms. Students gain new thematic knowledge and interact with their peers through videos, chats, workshops, interactive lessons, and games. Students will come away from their virtual exchange with:

  • Leadership skills and practice
  • Increased involvement in civic engagement and volunteerism
  • Mutual understanding between youth from different countries
  • Increased awareness of specific program themes such as STEAM, social justice, or climate change
  • Upon successful completion of The Experiment Digital Leadership in STEM, students receive a Certificate of Completion, access to the U.S. Department of State’s International Alumni Network, and unique project funding opportunities from the U.S. Department of State
  • Upon successful completion of any virtual exchange, students receive a $400 scholarship toward study abroad in summer 2025 with The Experiment in International Living.
