For more than 85 years, World Learning has worked to create a more peaceful and just world. Our education, development, and exchange programs help people find their voices, connect with their communities, strengthen the institutions that form the backbone of a democratic society, and build relationships across cultures. With our support, these emerging leaders tackle critical global issues like poverty, conflict, and inequality.
World Learning is working to improve global education to ensure schools and teachers have the tools they need to support students—including English language instruction through our TESOL teacher training. We encourage civic engagement in communities around the world, and we strengthen institutions to better serve their constituencies. Our youth workforce and entrepreneurship programs help people cultivate the skills they need for the modern economy. And consistent with our long history, we continue to offer a robust portfolio of people-to-people exchanges—including professional exchanges, academic exchanges, and youth programs—that enrich the lives of people from more than 150 countries.
World Learning’s core values of community, intercultural understanding, social inclusion and justice, and sustainability inform our internal and external relationships, drive our decision-making, and are reflected in the ways we work and fulfill our mission.
Our distinct approach to change incorporates five key elements: experiential learning, leadership development, inclusive practices, innovation, and grants management. We collaborate with local partners to find solutions that will truly work for each community. Together, we create the foundations for a better tomorrow.
