UWC Dilijan students and staff are involved in the local initiatives through the Dilijan Community Centre, which provides resources, expertise, knowledge and information to drive the development of the Dilijan city. The Centre’s educational initiative includes language courses, art and performing arts classes. The Centre also provides training programmes and special seminars for teenagers, women, teachers and other groups. The Centre has become a meeting place for UWC students and the local youth, and a platform for the discussion of new ideas, initiatives and shared problems. Therefore, conditions were created for the exchange of knowledge and experience, as well as for building mutual understanding between members of different cultures.
