Who we are
American Pals is an intra-national pen pal project with a simple mission: to help young Americans
get to know their own country and fellow citizens better.
We pair middle and high school classrooms from different geographic and cultural environments across the United States for offline letter exchanges.
We aim to improve the conditions for healthy civic discourse by enabling direct and personal
communication between students with different
backgrounds, life experiences, and perspectives.
How it works
We provide you with all the tools you need to make the process of incorporating American Pals into your classroom as seamless as possible. Just download the tools provided in our Resources tab to help you get started.
