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.

Built the capacity of the University of Anbar to provide improved educational and career development opportunities to students, thereby preparing graduates with the 21st-century hard and soft skills needed to enter the workforce successfully.
The Investing in the Liberated University of Anbar project, funded by the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, aimed to strengthen the capacity of the University with a focus on engineering education, English language teaching and learning, and career support for students. The project consisted of a substantial collaborative needs assessment followed by technical assistance activities to address priority needs.
World Learning delivered several professional development workshop series for faculty in three colleges who either prepared English teachers or taught through the medium of English, strengthening the respective skill sets and pedagogies. World Learning also delivered workshops to strengthen the University’s career services to meet student needs and facilitated a labor market assessment to inform curricula design and student support. World Learning’s implementing partner, Purdue University, supported the University’s College of Engineering with international accreditation preparation and several faculty development initiatives.
