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.

We at World Learning were deeply saddened by this month’s devastating earthquake in Ecuador. We are grateful and relieved to report that all students, staff and partners of our SIT Study Abroad and The Experiment in International Living programs are unhurt and safe. Our thoughts remain with the many victims and their families.
World Learning has a long history in Ecuador. We have had programs in the country for more than 35 years, and we have deep bonds with communities where we operate. Over the past few days, we have heard from many alumni and community members who want to help those in the World Learning family and other Ecuadorians who have been impacted by this tragedy. The outpouring of support and well wishes underscores the powerful connection to Ecuador that many in the World Learning community share.
If you would like to help the people of Ecuador, we urge you to consider making donations to the following organizations:
- Fundación Heifer Ecuador
- Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies
- Ecuador Listo y Solidario
