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.

Apply to join the NextGen Coders Network
Applications are now open for the Spring 2021 semester, which will run from February to April
The NextGen Coders Network is a 10-week virtual exchange between participants from Iraq, Kuwait, the Palestinian Territories, and the U.S. Our program is a project-based learning experience which includes self-guided coursework on topics like intercultural communication, program management, and coding. Participants will work both synchronously and asynchronously with teammates from across the world to produce a final website or mobile application on a topic of their choice.
Interested applicants, please note that this program will require three to six hours of effort per week, including at least one hour of synchronous meetings per week. Please consider carefully whether you can commit to that level of effort for the full ten-week program before applying. Upon completion of the program, participants are awarded a certificate of completion and join the alumni networks of NGCN, World Learning, the Stevens Initiative, and the U.S. Department of State.
The Spring 2021 semester will run from February 15 to April 25. The application will open in December and will close in late January. If you are from the United States, or are an international student attending a US school, please apply through the application link on this page. If you are applying from Iraq, Kuwait, or the Palestinian Territories, please contact the partner institution closest to you to apply. For a full list of partner institutions by country, please see NGCN’s program page.
