WC brings together young people from all backgrounds on the basis of their shared humanity, to engage with the possibility of social change through courageous action, personal example and selfless leadership. To achieve this, UWC schools and colleges all over the world deliver a challenging and transformational educational experience to a deliberately diverse group of young people, inspiring them to become agents of positive change.
UWC COLOMBIA has three programs for which it is currently raising funds:
- International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma: UWC COLOMBIA selects students to complete the diploma at schools on 4 continents. Students are selected based on demonstrated promise and potential. Most candidates receive full or partial financial assistance based on their needs.
- Programa Impulso: UWC COLOMBIA also runs a shorter educational program, which increases the number of people who can have access to UWC’s educational experience.
- United World College: UWC COLOMBIA is working to create the first two-year college in South America. This would offer a transformative UWC education, and in its first ten years reach 450 Colombians and bring 750 students from all over the world to Colombia to form lifelong relationships with our country and people.
UWC fosters a lifelong commitment to social responsibility and to date, it has inspired a worldwide network of more than 60,000 alumni, who believe it is possible to take action and make a difference locally, nationally, and internationally.
