- 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.

What We Do > Program Area
Strengthening a society’s institutions strengthens society itself. World Learning believes institutions work best when they fulfill their missions strategically, connect with key allies, and expand to serve a broader constituency. When institutions are strong, they not only serve their communities but drive meaningful change at the local, national, and international level.
World Learning realizes this vision by recognizing the organizations with which we work as partners. They are passionate advocates striving to engage more effectively with society. We work beside them as they set the ground for change internally, define the changes they need to make, develop a plan to achieve that change, and put their plans into action. Over time, our partners shift their organizational culture toward continuous improvement, strategically pursuing their missions and adapting to changing environments and positively affecting the system and communities within which they operate.
Read on to see how we incorporate the five signature elements of World Learning’s approach to change into our institutional strengthening programs or check out our Theory of Change for an even more detailed look at what sets us apart.
