World Leadership School

By the Numbers

World Leadership School, and its nonprofit foundation TabLab, partner with schools around the world to transform learning and empower next generation leaders. We carefully measure the impact of our travel programs for global student leadership on all of our partner schools. Over the last decade, World Leadership School has worked with 90 independent schools in the US and abroad and 3,100 students and faculty. With our help and instructional coaching, these schools are designing global student leadership education programs, shifting classrooms to Project-Based Learning, and offering life-changing volunteer travel programs for students and faculty.

Through TabLab, we’re also transforming learning for rural partner schools in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the rural USA. Thanks mostly to student fundraising, we have raised $905,969 in donations since 2008, which has been invested in classrooms, dining halls, girls dormitories, and other critical school service projects. TabLab partners with rural schools inside the classroom as well with a 2-year program of technology, teacher training, and curriculum.
