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.

The Bawsala Mentorship Program provides training, mentorship, and networking opportunities to help young Algerian women build their leadership skills and job-readiness skills.
The Bawsala Mentorship Program is an initiative originally implemented by World Learning in Algiers under the name Maharat Mentorship Program through designed utilizing World Learning Algeria’s approach and expertise with youth workforce development. Implemented in close partnership with the U.S. Embassy in Algeria, over 10 months the project successfully helped 70% of participants to obtain internship or job opportunities, with 30% of participants going on to further their studies. Under this new grant, the Bawsala project will expand to cover Algiers and Oran to benefit 50 unemployed Algerian women.
Enable young women in Algiers to:
- Gain self-awareness of their personal attributes and skills.
- Build leadership and job-readiness skills.
- Develop robust relationships with successful female leaders in Algeria.
