The sun is shining and OWN is ready for summer!
As the end of the school year approaches, OneWorld Now! looks towards summer with excitement and gratitude.
OneWorld Now! is wrapping up the 15th year of our Global Leadership Program, a milestone made possible through your support. Here are a few accomplishments we’re celebrating:
- OWN students hosted a successful Get Global Conference at the UW. Check out videos and photos from our annual youth-led event.
- Ten students received the IIE Passport Award, a scholarship they can apply to study abroad in college.
- Six students received scholarships from the Alden Landis Memorial Fund to study abroad this summer.
- OWN’s spring campaign raised $60,000 to support spring and summer programs and your donations won us a “Dollars for Change Award” through the Seattle Foundation’s GiveBIG day.
- On June 16th, current students will wrap up their year at OneWorld Now! with a graduation party.
- The sun is shining in Seattle!
It’s been a fulfilling program year for OWN. We couldn’t do this without you! Thank you for believing in OWN’s work and supporting our students.
