About Participate Learning

Uniting our world through global education

Today’s students need access to education that not only ensures college and career-readiness, but that also enables them to lead and thrive in the world community and global marketplace.

Participate Learning is your partner for language and global education options in K-12 schools. We are committed to empowering educators to strengthen student outcomes and promote cultural understanding at home and abroad, in large part through early access to language opportunities.
