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
The Master's Scholarship Program (MSP) provided 20 Palestinian university graduates with access to master’s-level educational opportunities in the U.S.
The program aimed to build the capacity of key Palestinian sectors including water treatment, agribusiness, industrial production and operations management, public administration, teaching English as a foreign language, construction management, and youth development. Upon completion of their master’s programs, participants returned home with technical knowledge and skills that will contribute to the development of the Palestinian economy, as well as new perspectives and ideas that will enhance their development as leaders and increase their understanding of the U.S. In addition, MSP continued to support participants through follow-on activities in the West Bank and Gaza that enriched their academic experience and contributed to community development such as internships, research opportunities, and community service events. As lead implementer of MSP, World Learning worked in close collaboration with in-country partner AMIDEAST.
