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.

ECO-CATALYST aims to strengthen the capacity of community career development centers (CDCs) and entrepreneurship incubators (EIs) to become catalysts for locally-led, inclusive eco - nomic growth.
The project focuses on research-based identification of local employment and business opportunities, with targeted outreach to ensure information sharing and appropriate preparation for opportunities with marginalized groups, particularly women.
Career development centers and entrepreneurship incubators across Algeria develop and promote locally designed solutions to economic problems through advancing gender parity and closing the skills gap.
- 4 selected CDCs/EIs deepen their skills in analysis, outreach, and training design and develop community-based action plans for economic development.
- 600 Job seekers trained in workplace skills and values;
- 30 entrepreneurs equipped with business plans.
- 80% of beneficiaries gain new employment or initiate entrepreneurial projects
- Women in communities learn of opportunities in their communities for employment or entrepreneurship
- CDCs and EIs develop a mentorship model for job seekers and entrepreneurs that become long term relationships
