About the Organization

Eighty years ago, a group of young Americans sailed to Germany on a cultural exchange program. They returned home with lifelong friendships, a broader understanding of the world, and the ability to empathize with people from other cultures. This was the beginning of The Experiment in International Living. It was also the beginning of World Learning.

The Experiment in International Living is still a vibrant part of World Learning today. But as global needs have grown, World Learning has grown too. Today World Learning operates the SIT graduate school, study abroad programs, and leads international development and civic activism programs throughout the world.

In 60 countries with an annual budget of over $100 million, World Learning empowers people and strengthens institutions that help people learn, grow, and thrive.

Nobel Peace Prize winners and heads of parliament have earned master’s degrees at our School of International Training. College students spend a semester abroad in our Study Abroad program. Judges, police officers and other community leaders hone their skills through our international exchanges. Activists in Myanmar learn community organizing through our international development program.

Today, more than ever, the world needs fully engaged global citizens who recognize what it means to build bridges of tolerance, respect, and understanding and have the knowledge, skills, and international experience to assume leadership positions in the world. At this moment of unprecedented, acute, international need and opportunity, World Learning is responding by re-investing in its programs, deepening their impact, and implementing a global vision for the future.

World Learning is an equal employment opportunity/affirmative action/veterans/ADA employer, committed to increasing the diversity of its workforce.
