Students at UWC-USA start working to become agents for change the minute they set foot on campus. Building bridges to understanding with students of radically diverse nationalities, races, beliefs and economic backgrounds. Partnering with a local homeless shelter, tutoring children, and renovating a community center. Learning to respect nature as they test their endurance in the wilderness. And completing a rigorous IB diploma program at the same time. Our students learn lessons in practical idealism that equip them to become changemakers for life.
