Alumni Stories

Our OWN Stories

OneWorld Now!‘s primary objective is to cultivate the next generation of global leaders. The program is unique, however, because it is designed to create opportunities for young people that have historically not had access to integrated leadership programs – students of color and economically disadvantaged youth.
