The U.S. and countries across Latin America share a rich history, and virtual exchange can enhance the relationship by creating a unique space to explore the deep connections and shared goals. Today, we join a centralized group of Stevens Initiative virtual exchange providers dedicated to bringing the world closer together. This is not just an opportunity for Overcoming Bias Through Language Learning to reach even more young people, but this also marks a significant milestone as we join other established programs in a global movement to make virtual exchange accessible to all young people. Thanks to the generous support of the Stevens Initiative and the Bezos Family Foundation, we are proud to offer Overcoming Bias Through Language Learning entirely free of cost.

Global Nomads Group’s Overcoming Bias Through Language Learning is a virtual exchange that promotes empathy, awareness, and action-orientation among middle and high school aged youth in Mexico and the United States through language learning. Learn more about all programs here.

We are thrilled to join these renowned organizations in the field, to become part of an ecosystem of strategic partners ensuring that anyone who wants to join a virtual exchange in the U.S. and Latin America can. Learn how you can get involved here.

The Stevens Initiative is an international leader in virtual exchange, bringing young people from diverse places together to collaborate and connect through everyday technology. Created in 2015, the Initiative not only invests in virtual exchanges, but also shares research, resources and promising practices with the
field, while advocating for broader adoption to improve impact. Learn more:

Global Nomad Group’s Overcoming Bias Through Language Learning is funded by the Stevens Initiative, which is housed at the Aspen Institute and is supported by the Bezos Family Foundation.
