The Exchange is an exciting way for high school students to discover how their peers in their classrooms and around the country view important constitutional issues facing the nation. The Constitution Center produces three programs a year, each on a different constitutional topic. Each program features a unique classroom based curriculum and a live video conference event, allowing students from around the country to deliberate face to face.
