“The next step is to do something about it. Once you feel empowered and you find something you’re passionate about and you feel there’s a need and a purpose, it’s just the obvious next step.” – Katherine Lorenz, SIT Study Abroad, Chile 2000

After 80 years, World Learning programs have generated more than 100,000 alumni, and this number is growing by thousands each year. The Exchange is a resource for alumni that helps build connections and empowers them to be leaders of social change through services, tools, and opportunities that include career services, fellowships, and lifelong Learning. The Exchange helps recent participants of all World Learning programs—The Experiment in International Living, SIT Study Abroad, SIT Graduate Institute, International Honors program, and our Washington, DC-based development and exchange programs.

The Exchange sponsors three signature fellowships that provide mentoring, training, and seed funding to a new generation of social innovators, leaders, and change agents:
