The Experiment Digital is a fully-funded two-month virtual summer program that helps high school-aged youth become more civically engaged by empowering them to plan and execute a community service project. Designed to connect students across the globe without leaving their living room, participants interact through videos, discussion forums, online chats, webinars, and playing games together. Through these activities, participants develop leadership and cross-cultural communications skills, speak with peers from different countries, and design youth-led projects to create positive social change. The exchanges take place online, so students can participate from anywhere. We encourage students with diverse backgrounds to apply!
Started in 2016, The Experiment Digital is sponsored by the Stevens Initiative, a partnership aimed to increase exchanges between youth in the U.S. and the Middle East. Through this program, students from these regions take part in a cultural exchange to build friendships, mutual understanding, and global awareness.
