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.

A hub for innovation where young minds flourish. The STEAM Discovery Center is an extracurricular STEAM education and teacher training institution.
The STEAM Discovery Center is an extracurricular STEAM education and teacher training institution. At the Center, we encourage every member to think creatively, solve real-world problems, and challenge their limitations. Our programs are fun, project-based learning experiences where students can make connections between school, their community, and the broader world. Our teacher training programs provide teachers with expertise in modern pedagogical best practices, such as experiential learning, Universal Design for Learning, and reflective practice, that will help spread our passion for STEAM teaching across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
To my surprise, I noticed that my students were extremely happy when they had the chance to express their understanding of the lesson even though they made mistakes. The engagement of my students was so high that three students refused to leave my session when it ended and kept writing on the board.
