What We Do
- WHERE WE WORK
Welcome Message from Carol Jenkins
For more than 90 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.

Paul Muther’s trusteeship began in May 2010, when World Learning Inc. acquired the International Honors Program (IHP) comparative study abroad curriculum. Muther had been on the board of IHP since 2003. He was elected chair of World Learning’s Finance Committee in October 2010. In 2008 and 2010, two of his children were Experimenters to France. Muther’s 30-year career in corporate banking encompassed numerous international posts in Hong Kong, Seoul, Toronto, Chicago, and Sydney. He retired from JPMorgan Chase in 2004, where he served as senior vice president and managing director. Muther spent six years on the board of the Hong Kong International School as vice chair and head of the Finance Committee. After retiring in Toronto, Muther has given his time to local youth sports programs as coach, division convener, director of the North Toronto Soccer Club, and treasurer and board member of the Toronto Leaside Girls Hockey Association. Muther is a trustee and treasurer of the Toronto-based Korean Canadian Children’s Association, a nonprofit dedicated to serving the needs of Canadians who have adopted Korean children. Muther studied abroad with IHP after his junior year at Harvard, and graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor's degree in social relations in 1967. After graduating, Muther served three years as a lieutenant in the U.S. Army Field Artillery. In 1974, he graduated from Stanford University with MBA and JD degrees.
