Congratulations & Bon Voyage to OneWorld Now! Students

Category : News & Media

A message from OWN’s Executive Director

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.

We are deeply saddened to share that OneWorld Now! founding board member Bob Walsh recently passed away unexpectedly. As an entrepreneur with a big heart, Bob pioneered major sporting events grounded in the power of citizen’s diplomacy, such as the Good Will Games in 1990, and he directed humanitarian efforts in the Soviet Union and later Republic of Georgia, both of which led to honorary awards.

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!

Gratitude

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.
