Exchange Day is a worldwide celebration of the power of international exchange. Exchange Day is also an opportunity to raise awareness of these programs and to spread the word about the many ways in which people and communities benefit from people-to-people diplomacy. Exchange Day, as J Day, was piloted in the summer of 2014 by three Alliance members: Cenet, Greenheart International, and Spirit Cultural Exchange.
This year, Exchange Day is August 7, 2023. We are excited to offer an array of opportunities for members and stakeholders to raise awareness about exchange programs. For more information on how to celebrate, visit the below website!
