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 goal of the WE Can Code Program is to increase the interest and ability of disadvantaged youth in Jordan, particularly young women, to pursue advanced training and ultimately find or create employment in Jordan’s growing ICT sectors.
To reach this goal, the project will connect 80 disadvantaged youth aged 16-17, with U.S. women IT professionals and Jordanian mentors working in ICT fields for a four-month women’s economic empowerment and career mentorship program to build professional skills, technical skills and promote women’s participation in ICT careers. Through these professional connections, Jordanian women and U.S. women working in the ICT related sectors will provide their personal experiences and learnings from their career, while sharing insights from efforts to promote women’s empowerment within IT in America and Jordan, promote professional values and skills and highlight job opportunities within Jordan’s ICT sectors.
