Through our International Exchange and Development Programs World Learning brings emerging leaders from 140 countries annually to the United States on exchanges. We offer short-term learning experiences for individuals seeking professional development through links to US and international colleagues, new insights, and a broader view of core US values and culture. Academic exchanges place international students in US colleges and universities to strengthen their leadership and professional skills while they explore US culture. Young people from around the globe learn about leadership, current issues, and peacebuilding on World Learning youth exchange programs.
The Experiment in International Living has been offering immersive cross-cultural exchanges, fun and thought-provoking adventures, and experiential learning programs since 1932. Today, The Experiment provides summer abroad opportunities for high school students in more than 20 countries worldwide. Each Experiment group typically comprises 10 to 15 high school students who come from diverse communities nationwide and from around the world. Experimenters share an intellectual curiosity for the world and are looking to make a difference by broadening their cultural horizons. The Experiment in International Living’s mission is to create meaningful, dynamic experiences for students eager to challenge themselves and engage their sense of global citizenry.
