About OneWorld Now!
OneWorld Now! (OWN) is a youth development nonprofit with almost 20 years of experience providing language instruction, leadership development, and study abroad opportunities to primarily low-income youth of color in the Seattle area (and now, with online programming during the pandemic, to youth across the country).
As part of our year-long after-school program, students can earn high school world language credit by studying Arabic, Mandarin Chinese, Korean, or Russian twice a week after school. They can also opt to participate in twice monthly Leadership workshops and (during non-pandemic times) apply to study abroad in South Korea, Morocco, or Russia.
OneWorld Now!’s vision is that all youth have access to transformative international education opportunities. To help ensure this, all OneWorld Now! programs are priced on a sliding scale based on family size and income.
OneWorld Now! is committed to using a framework of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to support its youth, staff, and community and to consistently assess and improve its organizational structures and programming.
