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 STEM Hub provided a space for visitors to think creatively, build their confidence, apply their knowledge to solve real problems, and embrace the role of trial and error in the educational process.
Boeing partnered with World Learning to establish a center for extracurricular STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) training and education in Cairo, Egypt. The STEM Hub equipped Egypt’s young scientists, innovators, and entrepreneurs with the necessary skills to serve national objectives and lead Egypt into the next era of technical innovation. The Hub offered programs specially designed to allow participants to explore, apply, and innovate through hands-on activities and our project-based learning approach. Our learning methodology improved the quality of knowledge acquisition as well as leverage the skills, talents, and leadership potential of Egyptian youth.
Programs offered at the STEM Hub included:
- Coding and Programming
- Environment and Recycling
- Energy Management
- Business and Entrepreneurship
- Graphics and Multimedia
Special workshops also supported teachers in developing additional skills in STEM application and delivery. These courses were led by an experienced staff of education professionals, STEM experts, and passionate mentors who wanted to share their knowledge, experience, and successes with the next generation of Egypt’s problem solvers.
- Offer high-quality extracurricular STEM education programs to Cairo youth.
- Provide professional development opportunities in STEM to teachers through pedagogical training.
- Ensure the inclusion of marginalized communities through targeted scholarships.
