American high school students (ages 15-18) have a rare opportunity to interact with their Iraqi peers this summer. The Digital Young Leaders Exchange Program is entirely online. Students in the U.S. and Iraq participate in webinars, video chats, and discussion forums as a means of cultural exchange and to brainstorm solutions to problems in their respective communities. Applications are due by March 15. For details see, dylep.org/
Interested in an in-person cultural exchange? Then check out the Iraqi Young Leaders Exchange program, which brings Iraqi teens to the U.S. for four weeks during the summer to interact with their American peers. iylep.tumblr.com/highschoolenglish
Students can apply to both but can only participate in one of the programs.
