- 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 WiSci Girls STEAM Camp brings together girls from around the world and the U.S. to explore the STEAM fields and access mentorship opportunities and leadership training.
Women in Science (WiSci) Girls STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Design, and Mathematics) Camp is a private public partnership (PPP) between the U.S. Department of State’s Secretary’s Office of Global Partnerships, UN Foundation’s Girl Up Initiative, Intel Corporation, and Google. In 2019, the camp will bring high school girls from Ethiopia and the U.S. together for 13 days in Ethiopia.
During WiSci camp, participants engage in an intensive STEAM curriculum administered by experts from partners such as Google, Intel, NASA and American Society for Microbiology. WiSci campers focus on developing their leadership potential and exploring the use of technology to create a safer, more secure world.
