One World Youth ProJect business plan presentation for Advisory council meeting, Feb 20, 2010
Connecting Communities for Youth Action.

Our vision is a just world built through the actions of empowered, discerning and empathetic generations of global citizens.

One World Youth Project is a youth-for-youth powered movement linking schools globally in service-learning to prepare the next generation for the globalized 21st Century.
• We believe in creating global networks while strengthening local communities.
• We believe all communities have assets and challenges. We believe youth can learn the value of their own community by sharing that community with others.
• We believe in adapting our program offerings to meet each classroom and campus’s unique culture.
• We believe in empowering youth to understand the difference between direct peer-to-peer dialogue versus “communication” through intermediaries such as the media, politicized discourse and the global economy.
• We believe in promoting equal partnerships between schools, which result in rich cultural exchange rather than perpetuating the “West for Rest” conceptual trap.
• We believe intercultural communication breaks down barriers and builds bridges that lead to social change.
• We believe the end does not justify the means.
• We value OWYP participants as collaborators rather than just as the population we serve.
• We believe in nurturing young people’s natural tendency toward empathy.
OWYP connects schools globally for collaborative learning and community service. We enhance existing curriculum to prepare youth for the increasingly globalized society in which they exist while simultaneously helping educators continue to meet state and national educational standards. OWYP provides youth with a deeper understanding of the connections that exist in the world, consistent opportunities for conversations with peers abroad, practice with applying empathy, and a stronger connection to their local community through community mapping and hands-on service-learning. We deliver these services to hundreds of young people through two interlinking programs...
