Our flagship international student-to-student communication exchange is based in school classrooms and takes place over the course of an academic year. Students connect with peers in countries across the globe through our online virtual exchange where they develop new insights and deeper understanding of their place in the world, and discover how much we all share in common.
In addition, our customized virtual and in-person exchange programs for 2021-2022 include:

In 2007 our program began as Project PeacePal, an international pen-pal letter exchange, designed to provide youth across the globe with opportunities to directly communicate with each other. Since that time Project PeacePal has grown into the organization now known as Global One to One, and has connected over 18,000 students in 29 countries across the globe. Our unique approach cultivates intercultural understanding and empathy in a way that can only take place when we interact one to one.
During non-pandemic conditions our Engage One to One program provides opportunities for direct contact to improve crosscultural understanding. This is done by hosting groups from other countries as well as sponsoring activities that engage students in local community issues.
