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 Promoting Education, Altruism, and Civic Engagement (PEACE) program engaged Algerian university students and select young leaders with disabilities in addressing social problems within their communities.
Through a partnership with the Algerian National Federation of People with Disabilities, the PEACE program worked with existing networks to provide general university students and youth with disabilities meaningful volunteer experiences that reflected their interests and helped them to make a valuable impact on their communities while building practical skills and enhancing their professional portfolios for future employment.
Project activities achieved four primary objectives:
- Enhanced the capacity of Algerian universities and civil society organizations to collaboratively provide students with volunteer and career opportunities;
- Improved leadership, project planning, and job skills for Algerian university students and select youth with disabilities;
- Increased student participation in community service projects; and
- Maximized future program sustainability by building on current government and donor initiatives, strengthening existing civil society networks, creating new partnerships, and building local training capacity.
