The El-Hibri Charitable Foundation partners with universities around the world to establish OWYP’s service-learning program on each university’s campus for the benefit of their students as well as the surrounding community.

In each university, OWYP trains a team of exceptional university students to facilitate a global education curriculum in local classrooms, which enables youth to connect, collaborate and co-create with youth abroad via technology. (Read more on OWYP’s university student trainings here.)

University students become leaders to local 10-14 year olds, opening up doors to the 21st century world, while the university becomes a leader to the community, creating opportunities for both service and learning.

“One World Youth Project provided our university students with a unique global leadership, management and cultural competency skill set. The program offered students an opportunity to apply their skills and tenacity in the local community, advancing their leadership skills as well as furthering Georgetown University’s commitment to community engagement. Adding a global dimension to Georgetown University’s existing service-learning programs, One World Youth Project offers an innovative international experience for our students.” – Dan Porterfield, Ph.D, Former Senior Vice President for Strategic Development at Georgetown University, President of Franklin & Marshall College
