Student and Tutor Applications
Youth Exchange Program Student Application
The Youth Exchange Program is for students who are 13-18 (born on June 8, 2002 or later) who want to learn English with a peer tutor. We work with students who have been affected by conflict in the Middle East and North Africa. If you are accepted, you will need to complete a training and a diagnostic test before we can match you with a tutor. You will be expected to meet with your tutor for at least 1.5 hours each week.
Turkish Program Tutor Application
If you speak Turkish, please consider applying to tutor with the Paper Airplanes Turkish Program! You will be matched with a student affected by conflict, and will meet once weekly via videochat to tutor them in the Turkish language.
English Program Tutor Application
English tutors must be advanced or fluent English speakers and they must be free 2-3 hours a week to volunteer with us. Prior to being matched with a student, tutors must complete our online training which takes 6-7 hours. We provide the curriculum for the classes and students and tutors decide when their meetings will take place.
