World Learning provides education, exchange, and development programs that cultivate the global leadership and social innovation needed in a shrinking world. Our comprehensive portfolio of programs is enhanced by a worldwide network of hundreds of thousands of alumni, staff, partners, and friends, including Peace Corps founder Sargent Shriver and Nobel Peace Prize winners Wangari Maathai and Jody Williams.
World Learning occupies a unique position among international organizations. Other education institutions either serve undergraduate or graduate students or professionals. Exchange organizations typically send American students abroad or bring international students to the United States. Similarly, international development organizations manage programs or they teach about development. World Learning is a leader in all of the above.
