Connect thru Character

One World connects students across the world thru core human values that are meant to transcend borders and support our students as they meet the uncertain challenges of our 21st Century world.

Empower thru Service

Every One World Club develops at least one service learning project intended to show our students that they can become positive change agents in their school, local, national and global communities.

What a One Worlder might say…

  • Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.

    Margaret Mead
  • Tolerance implies a respect for another person, not because he is wrong or even because he is right, but because he is human.

    John Cogley-Commonweal
  • Our loyalties must transcend our race, our tribe, our class, and our nation: and this means we must develop a world perspective.

    Dr. Martin Luther King (1929-68)
  • The defining challenge of the 21st Century will be to face the reality that humanity faces a common fate on a crowded planet. That common fate will require new forms of global cooperation, a fundamental point of blinding simplicity that many world leaders have yet to understand or embrace.

    Jeffrey Sachs
  • To welcome another person with love and affection is the highest religion. To find God in your own heart is to experience the highest religious truth. The ability to carry that awareness with you, seeing the same divinity in others, brings it into your daily life.

    unknown author
  • I am inferior of any whose rights I trample under foot. Men are not superior by reason of accidents of race or color. They are superior who have the best heart -- the best brain.

    Robert Green Ingersoll (1833-99), American Politician, Lecturer
  • As man advances in civilization… there is only an artificial barrier to prevent his sympathies extending to the men of all nations and races.

    Charles Darwin
  • We are all citizens of the world.  The tragedy of our times is that we do not know this.

    Woodrow Wilson 28th President of the United States
  • The only salvation for civilization and the human race lies in the creation of world government. As long as sovereign states continue to have armaments and armament secrets, new world wars will be inevitable.

    Albert Einstein Interview, October 1945
  • …the whole of human history shows that a cooperative spirit is not only natural to men, but more deeply rooted than any self-seeking tendencies. If this were not so we should not see the growth of integration and organization of his communities which the centuries and the millennia plainly exhibits.

    Charles Darwin The Descent of Man (2nd ed., 1875, pp. 187-8)
  • The sea’s vast depths lie open to the fish; Where’er the breezes blow the bird may roam; So to the brave man every land’s a home. (Omne solum forti patria est, ut piscibus aequor, Ut volucri, vacuo quicquid in orbe patet.)

    Ovid, Fasti Bk. I, l. 493.
  • The whole world is a man's birthplace.

    Statius, Thebais Bk. viii, l. 320.
  • …I am not an Athenian nor a Greek but a citizen of the world.

    Socrates per Plutarch, Of Banishment, 600.
  • …If a man be gracious and courteous to strangers it shows he is a citizen of the world.

    Francis Bacon Essays: Of Goodness
  • … As man advances in civilization, there is only an artificial barrier to prevent his sympathies extending to the men of all nations and races.

    Charles Darwin
  • …My country is the world, and my religion is to do good.

    Thomas Paine Rights of Man. Pt. ii, ch. v.
