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 U.S. Speaker program sends experts from the United States abroad, either in person or virtually, to engage and consult with key foreign audiences on a variety of technical topics.
The program aims to promote an understanding of U.S. policies and institutions within their political, economic, social, and cultural context. U.S. Speakers address topics identified and developed by U.S. missions, generally U.S. embassies and consulates, worldwide in cooperation with the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
- Support U.S. foreign policy goals by enabling U.S. citizen experts in a variety of fields to interact with key foreign audiences worldwide, in person and via virtual platforms.
- Promote an understanding among foreign audience of U.S. policies and institutions, and the political, economic, social, and cultural context from which they arise.
- Engage in conversations that enable foreign audiences to learn more about U.S. society, culture and institutions, thereby supporting development and growth of political, economic, and social institutions abroad, and countering negative stereotypes.
- Establish sustained relationships and linkages between U.S. speakers and foreign audiences and institutions in order to share knowledge and skills with their peers and broader communities.
