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.

Everyone has a role to play in a thriving society. World Learning believes that when people come together with mutual understanding and respect, they can lead strong communities, adaptable institutions, and peaceful global partnerships.
Our 92 programs worldwide encourage people to reimagine themselves as leaders—and we equip them with the skills to make change.
In Lebanon, we support public schools in providing children with high-quality reading instruction, the foundation for lifelong learning.
In Algeria, our STEAM Center (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) and workforce development programs help children and adults build promising futures for themselves.
In Mongolia, we support the development of a rising generation of democratic leaders, equipping them to engage in their communities, find solutions to local and global issues, and advocate for the inclusion of traditionally excluded populations.
And in Ethiopia, our HIV prevention and treatment initiative strengthens the abilities of employers and the government to reduce new HIV infections.
Our programs also bring people together. People-to-people exchanges like the Fulbright Specialist Program and our Women in Science Girls STEAM Camp offer people of all ages professional and academic development opportunities that promote leadership and collaboration.
We emphasize inclusion, tolerance, and empathy in all our work. These values help people create communities and address the world’s most urgent challenges—together.
