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
Our youth programs build bridges across cultures and prepare the next generation of global leaders to tackle the world’s challenges.
The Experiment in International Living offers high school students immersive, life-transforming experiences in more than 20 countries around the world through three to five-week summer abroad programs. Experimenters connect deeply and engage meaningfully with the richness and complexities of another country through homestays, outdoor excursions, and meetings with local leaders and civil society groups. Program themes include cultural discovery, sustainability and the environment, language study, community service, and more.
Many Experimenters find that the friendships they form while abroad last a lifetime.
World Learning also brings hundreds of young people from over 35 countries to the United States each year on short and long-term exchanges that focus on youth leadership, peacebuilding, environmental stewardship, and more. These programs are led by a team of professional leaders.
