Global video chats led by young people
, for young people. ONE LINK. ONE CLICK. ONE WORLD.


Link Online Learners

Napa, United States
We host a series of weekly live link ups between young people of different cultures from all around the world. LOL chats are where your own culture and way of living connects you to the coolest house party playdate full of learning, empathy-building and healthy international mindfulness. LOL breaks down national barriers and has been recognised by the OECD.

“Being a part of LOL has allowed me to engage with young people from all over the world in an environment that is safe and comfortable, and have discussions about countries we may not know much about.”

What we do?

We run global, youth-led online intercultural exchanges. These range from fun games and conversations as entry points to member-generated extended collaborations that foster meaningful understanding as well as deep empathy and unique insight from designing first-hand experiences together.

 These are the kinds of quality interactions that only usually happen in once-in-a-lifetime school foreign exchange trips. We are making them happen four times a week,  to create really powerful bonds and genuine friendships between young people from truly diverse countries and lifestyles. 

Why we do it?

Our mission is to ensure that the next generation are fluid and very comfortable in interacting, collaborating and developing authentic friendships across cultures, world views and geographical boundaries. We believe that empathic listening and active engagement with people from places you may never go to,    will help build a world that appreciates our shared humanity.
