In the culturally diverse world we live in, the ability to communicate effectively with those from other cultures is an essential skill. Lack of direct experience and interaction with other cultures limits our understanding and perceptions.
Founded in 2006, the program began as Project PeacePal, an international pen-pal letter exchange, and has grown into the organization now known as Global One to One. Our intention is to provide youth across the globe with opportunities to directly communicate with each other. In 11 years we have connected over 18,000 students across the globe, cultivating intercultural understanding and empathy in a way that can only take place when we interact one to one.
