"Quite simply, the only way I could attend UWC was on scholarship and I was lucky enough to win one through open competition. UWC Atlantic College continues to give me faith to this day that all of us have the power to make the world a better place, whether through great acts or small."

"UWC encouraged our children to speak openly and with confidence about their own ideas and opinions. Studying and living with students from such a spectrum of socio-economic and cultural backgrounds meant they were able to learn from and contribute to this beautiful and diverse environment." 

Urbano Blanes and Pilar Moreno, Spain, UWC Mahindra College Parents
"UWC gave our son the opportunity to experience a different way of learning - that was far more inspiring, stimulating and motivating that the one we are used to in Spain - in an environment where diversity, multiculturalism and tolerance were present at all times.”

Chris Edwards, Head of College,  UWCSEA

"Dear Shelby, There's another great American - one J.F. Kennedy - who said this: "As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them." You've done that. You challenge, support and inspire the movement, for which we are grateful beyond measure.  Thank you."

Alex Wisch, Chile,                            UWC-USA 1989-1991

"I believe it's important to educate agents of change who can spread a culture of tolerance and understanding in a world that is increasingly going mad. I have been regularly supporting UWC for many years because I believe this need is an urgent one and is something that UWC can uniquely address."

Cristina Santamaría Ábalos, UWC Spanish National Committee

"I love working to train young people to become agents of change within their societies to achieve a peaceful and sustainable world. The UWC method for doing this is sensational! I hope the UWC movement continues to grow and continue its mission to make the world better, so necessary today. Many thanks!"
