When teachers sign up for a project they can choose their Match Day (when all students are matched with PenPals). All students should complete their profiles before Match day in order to be matched with PenPals!
Students are matched based on their age, and the project selected by their teacher/facilitator. Students who take the time to create strong profiles and answer the introductory question are matched with other students who do the same. Most of the time students PenPals will come from different countries, but for some projects students may be matched with PenPals in their own country.
Log in to your PenPal Schools teacher dashboard to meet your students’ PenPals and see what they’re writing!
