2023 Vietnam–U.S. Exchange

In early 2023, Learn2Link (L2L) launched a six-month virtual exchange program between high-school-age youth in Vietnam and the U.S.

Program Description

Each week, our 2023 Vietnam–U.S. Exchange participants virtually met with their home learning labs for approximately 90 minutes. During these meetings, L2L youth participated in a discussion-based curriculum, rooted in social-emotional and project-based learning experiences. 


In addition to these meetings, L2L youth participated in video calls with their exchange partner labs every three weeks. They were also responsible for completing weekly self-reflection and short homework assignments—utilizing Google Workspace, WhatsApp, and Snapchat—with their designated exchange partners.


Our 2023 Vietnam–U.S. Exchange occurred in three phrases:




  • March: L2L youth focused on exploring their cultures, their roles as ambassadors, and who they are as individuals.


  • April-May: L2L youth focused on exploring the problems that exist in their home communities, while also aligning these problems with the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Each participant then chose one SDG to work towards, through the development and implementation of a small-scale service-learning project in their home community.




  • May–June: L2L youth focused on developing service-learning projects, to be carried out in their home communities.




  • July-August: L2L youth carried out their service-learning projects in their home communities and completed a year-end personal reflection assignment.
