What We Do
- WHERE WE WORK
Welcome Message from Carol Jenkins
For more than 85 years, World Learning has equipped individuals and institutions to address the world’s most pressing problems. We believe that, working together with our partners, we can change this world for the better.
On my travels, I’ve had the opportunity to meet with many of those who have joined us in this mission. In Baghdad, we’ve trained more than 2,300 Iraqi youth who are already giving back at home. In London, our partners in the TAAP Initiative strongly believe that we are all responsible to practice inclusion. And in Vermont, our Experiment in International Living and School for International Training participants prove every day that they have the tools and the determination to change the world.
Please join us in our pursuit of a more peaceful and just world.
- Get Involved
For 85 years, World Learning has worked to create a more peaceful and just world. Our education, development, and exchange programs help people find their voices, connect with their communities, strengthen the institutions that form the backbone of a democratic society, and build relationships across cultures. With our support, these emerging leaders tackle critical global issues like poverty, conflict, and inequality.
World Learning is working to improve global education to ensure schools and teachers have the tools they need to support students—including English language instruction through our TESOL teacher training. We encourage civic engagement in communities around the world, and we strengthen institutions to better serve their constituencies. Our youth workforce and entrepreneurship programs help people cultivate the skills they need for the modern economy. And consistent with our long history, we continue to offer a robust portfolio of people-to-people exchanges—including professional exchanges, academic exchanges, and youth programs—that enrich the lives of people from more than 150 countries.
Our distinct approach to change incorporates five key elements: experiential learning, leadership development, inclusive practices, innovation, and grants management. We collaborate with local partners to find solutions that will truly work for each community. Together, we create the foundations for a better tomorrow.
