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
With continued support from the U.S. Embassy in Algiers, World Learning is working with six dynamic local partners to launch Community Connections Centers – CCC (C3s) to offer training and activities that build and promote community resilience among youth.
The C3’s portfolio of services contains four main pathways to resilience: cultural identity and connectedness; bridging personal capital; linking community capital; and non-violent-related behaviors and beliefs.
- Develop students’ soft-skills and job-readiness skills and help them create an action plan for the most suitable career path;
- Increase students’ sense of cultural pride and be more comfortable sharing their culture with others, and to help them develop trust and confidence in government and authority figures and community organizations;
- Engage participants in community action projects and allow them to address their concerns in a constructive manner;
- Offer a space where youth can discuss different topics and learn to express their opinions in public while improving their English language skills.
