Look at the world through the lens of JDI

Just Dilijan It! (JDI) is the UWC Dilijan summer programme designed for children ages 6 through 17 from diverse backgrounds to experience collaborative learning, community building and problem solving. Through living together on the UWCD campus and engaging in a variety of activities, they have the  opportunity to immerse in the aspects of the UWC education built around: international and intercultural understanding, celebration of differences, mutual responsibility and respect, compassion and service, respect for the environment, a sense of idealism and personal challenge. The programs offer a blend of educational, recreational and social activities that are aligned with the UWC mission striving to unite people for peace and a sustainable future.

Depending on the age group and language, JDI offers three sets of programmes for young people and families with younger children.

Join our vibrant international community to experience aspects of the UWC education - spend your summer on the beautiful campus of UWC Dilijan in the Armenian Alps.
