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.

The Access Virtual Potential Teacher Training Program is an online teacher training program supporting teachers in Indonesia to develop as professionals and teach English in English using learner-centered, communicative methods.
Through this virtual program, World Learning aims to increase the capacity and effectiveness of English language teachers in Indonesia, support inclusive education of students and professional development of teachers, and promote interactive, learner-centered education practices. Participants of the program complete two self-paced online courses developed by National Geographic Learning: English for Teaching and Professional Knowledge for English Language Teachers. Virtual Peer Learning Hubs integrate experiential learning, practical activities, and reflection into the online courses. They support teachers taking the online courses and provide a professional learning community for teachers to interact with as they complete the curriculum. Building off World Learning’s experience with the in-person ELTT program in Indonesia, this virtual program will rely on seven TESOL specialists from the World Learning pool of trainers to facilitate the training and professional development of 200 teachers in Indonesia, enabling them to increase their competency in teaching English using communicative, learner-centered methods and enhance the learning experience and English fluency of Indonesian students.
