The Washington Center for International Education (WCIE)’s mission is to connect people and resources in Washington, D.C.’s distinctive international community, to the local community and to the needs of refugees.
WCIE organizes education, community service, and student service learning programs. We believe that at this unique moment we need to come together to address issues like the global migration and refugee crisis, racism, and conservation and the environment.
The Washington, D.C. area offers us unique resources. Building on these resources, we bring people together through community service, serve recently-resettled refugees, and Student Service Learning (SSL). We love meeting people through one of our twice-annual Community Service Weeks, then we hope you’ll engage in our programs more and more deeply over time.
We are grateful for the volunteers, students, and families that join our programs; the facilitators and administrative team that bring our small group experiences to life; and to our many partners – particularly the National Capital Area Chapter of the Fulbright Association, whose members we welcome as volunteers in our programs, English Now!, the Bethesda, Maryland-based language school whose community inspires ours, and Montgomery County, Maryland, and the Montgomery County Public Schools, which certify our SSL offerings.
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, so we also thank the donors that support our programs and invite you to consider supporting us as well.
We look forward to meeting you and thank you for your interest in WCIE!
