one world center our programs

One World Center works with participants from across the globe to become Development Instructors using a unique ethos of teamwork and community, research, ideas and experimentation, and building on the principles of Participatory Action Research.

One World Center offers two core programs. They have been developed over 20 years to equip participants with the necessary skillset to have an impact on the world. Both programs allow for participants to join the community at OWC’s renowned campus in Michigan and learn from thought leaders and development experts about global development challenges.
