UWC makes education a force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future.
UWC 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. First, UWC COLOMBIA selects students to complete the International Baccalaureate (IB) 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.
Finally, UWC COLOMBIA is working to create the first two-year United World College in South America. Opening the college would offer a transformative UWC education in just the first ten years to 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.
