How you can help. At One World Center we have created a program where you can live, learn and serve The Poor to help end poverty for over half of humanity. We believe that poverty is the biggest social problem of our time and by joining together we can make the world a better place for all.
At one of our three locations you can sign up for our work-study programs where you can serve The Poor by learning to become a development instructor and work alongside The Poor in developing nations.
We send teams of ten out into the world four times a year. Join us today to help end poverty and begin your humanitarian career.

More than half of the world’s population live in poverty and we who have the will and power to create change, must stand shoulder to shoulder with the Poor. The world is in great need of people with heart and willingness to apply their forces.
If this resonates with you, consider starting your humanitarian career at One World Center!
We offer a unique volunteer-study program that will teach you things you never dreamt of and take you half way around the globe to work in some of the poorest communities, while honing your leadership skills, practicing outreach and communication and setting you up for a future working with people and communities here or abroad.
