Organization Information

Mission Statement

Americans are losing faith in one another. Many of our nation’s children feel they are growing up in bubbles, isolated from people unlike themselves, while our nation’s adults listen only to the like-minded. AEP's mission is to facilitate interactions between Americans from different backgrounds in the interest of forming "a more perfect union". How? AEP is a first-of-its-kind, free domestic summer exchange program for graduated high school seniors. This is a chance to travel, explore, and learn more about the United States from the people and places in it.

Description

During the Summer Exchange, high school seniors will spend two weeks of their summer in a community completely different from their own, hosted by other AEP students, they will explore, learn, and build personal and professional connections.

At the end of the trip, students will work together on a project documenting their experience. The project is up to the students, an opportunity to showcase their travels, adventures, and connections that they will share with the community during a final farewell ceremony with host families and community leaders.
