What We Do
- WHERE WE WORK
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.

The STEAMQuest project aims to equip 200 participants (120 youth and 80 educators) from eight regions of Algeria with knowledge and skills in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) to build economic opportunity and resilience to climate change.
This initiative will help participants to enhance their employability and entrepreneurship skills by addressing pressing climate challenges and promoting green initiatives. A unique aspect of the project is its linkage with rising graduate students and faculty at American universities, enabling Algerian participants to interact with international experts throughout the program.
Target regions: Eight high-priority communities in Algeria – to be finalized with Embassy input. Suggested communities, based on need as well as potential for innovations in the green economy development may include Algiers, Laghouat, Ouargla, Oran, Constantine, Illizi, Ghardaïa, Adrar, or El Oued.
