Radical Inclusivity

We strive to be as radically inclusive as possible. We are a community for everyone. We acknowledge that what excludes people is an inability to communicate in English and access to the internet. We are working hard to overcome this so we can truly be inclusive to all.


Partnerships between World Merit and others are built on a shared vision and based on mutuality and synergy. We always aim for a win-win-win outcome for our community, our partner and ourselves. Likewise, the actions of World Merit should never be at the expense, economic, environmental or otherwise, of others with whom we work.

80% of World Merit is developed by the next generation for the next generation, supported by the 20% who facilitate an environment for our community to flourish in.


We hire based on Merit and will ask you about your experiences rather than a list of accomplishments or grades. We love to hear about your journey, your drive and your passion and will never ask for a resume.
