UWC Atlantic College is the first of 14 United World Colleges around the world and a co-creator of the International Baccalaureate. They bring together diverse youth from over 90 countries to begin a lifelong pursuit of peace and social justice through dialogue, radical engagement and positive action. It focuses on social action, inter-cultural understanding and international participation.

We are keen to engage with other Changemaker schools, as well as schools in our locality, researchers, parents and businesses. We are looking for opportunities such as language exchanges, international projects, teacher training or any other real world learning projects.

Changemaking Initiatives include:

  • Community Service - every student is required to enroll in one community service faculty: Global, Social Justice, Environmental or Outdoor
  • Extra-curricular conferences - the school organises multiple extra-curricular conferences including outside speakers and workshops on, for example, sustainability, human interaction, or peace and conflict
  • GoMAD - financial support for students to implement their own social projects internationally
