AFS has recently completed two major research studies that demonstrate that Virtual Exchange (VE) can have a meaningful impact on the development of global competence among high-school aged youth around the world.

Both research studies of virtual exchange were funded by the Stevens Initiative, which is housed at the Aspen Institute and is supported by the Bezos Family Foundation. They were conducted within AFS’ strategic efforts in advancing active global citizenship worldwide, building on the decades-long tradition of AFS conducting research in the fields of intercultural learning and active global citizenship.
