Spreading Gratitude in Our Community

Category : News & Media

A holiday song from OneWorld Now! Students from OneWorld Now! on Vimeo.

At OneWorld Now!’s annual winter showcase and celebration, a group of students surprised – and serenaded – the staff with a very special song.

Watch and sign along!


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.
