How we do good differently

The world is full of things they say are “not doable.” But there’s a whole movement of people creating good in the world in ways we never imagined. Each and every one of us is entirely capable of changing the world. Because WE makes doing good, doable.

The WE Global Learning Center: More than just a headquarters

HEADQUARTERS
WE Global Leaning Center

Since its inauguration as part of WE Charity’s 20th anniversary in 2015, the WE Global Learning Center has become a destination for young people who want to learn about the world and take action to make it a better place.This landmark gift was the result of an incredible initial donation of $15 million from long-time supporters Hartley Richardson, The Richardson Foundation and David Aisenstat. Their generous action sparked a community of like-minded change-makers to come together to bring the WE GLC to life. Boasting world-class technology and featuring leadership programs, social issues workshops and event spaces available to the public, the WE Global Learning Center is a hub where action plans come to life and transformative change is created. Our programming includes opportunities for both students and educators to participate in service-learning workshops, both on-site and remotely. All of this and more makes the WE GLC not simply a headquarters for WE but a fundamental part of the movement.
