Creating opportunities for underserved youth to study abroad has always been a core component of our approach to international education. Over the last year, we made a tough choice to scale back our custom programs this summer, so we could focus our resources on becoming an accredited school, launching new programs and enhancing organizational sustainability. As a result, we’ve stepped up efforts to work with other study abroad partners across the nation to create scholarship opportunities for OneWorld Now! students.
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:
We are thrilled to share the news that OneWorld Now! was recently accredited as a supplementary school by AdvancEd and the Northwest Accreditation Commission.
AdvancED is the accrediting agency for more than 34,000 schools and school systems across the United States and 70 other nations.
At OneWorld Now!’s annual winter showcase and celebration, a group of students surprised – and serenaded – the staff with a very special song.
At every OneWorld Now! leadership workshop, students have the opportunity to publicly express their appreciation for another student. When students are new to leadership, they are often challenged to dig deep to express appreciation that goes beyond superficial reasons. Week after week, as the leadership workshops progress, the expressions of thanks become more significant and meaningful.
Recently, students turned the tables and shared their appreciation for OneWorld Now!.As you watch the below video, remember that everything we do at OneWorld Now! is made possible thanks to you. Their gratitude is a reflection of how much we value our community. Thank you. Thank you from our students from OneWorld Now! on Vimeo.
