About Our Club

I have been One World Club leader at Park Avenue School in Port Chester for almost a decade. I think my club was the second One as I started after Jeanine and Jack Zaccara trained me based on the First One World Club at Edison School in Port Chester. Jack Zaccara was my teacher in High and my advisor in the peer leadership program in which seniors mentor 9th graders by teaching them good character lessons weekly. Being in Peer leadership inspired me to be a teacher and also to be a One World Club leader. Joe Carvin has been instrumental in making One World happen in our schools. This year it is great to work with Mr. Doug French on One World programs and projects. We also welcome Ms. Angelia from One World China to present and teach the Chinese language and culture to our club students. My daughters grew up going to my club and now are pioneers of the Port Chester High School One World Club. After Dr. Reimers Harvard Think Tanks over the last two years, I worked with Port chester teachers to collaborate to rewrite the curriculum to intertwine global citizenship lessons to educate for a global network awareness, to connect through good character and empower through service learning. I have collaborated with educators from around the world during classroom google hangouts and during One World Week and was invited to attend workshops in China to continue working with these educators to bring about change and empower our students to become global citizens. This year I am now training new One World Club co-leader Marvin DeLeon. We are a combination of students in grades 4 and 5. Service-learning projects to be done in 2019-2020 include Trick or Treating for UNICEF, Turkey Trot for Port Chester Schools, Jump Rope for Heart for the American Heart Association, and Pennies for Patients Lymphoma and Leukemia. Club lessons educate, connect, and empower students to be leaders in Global Character education competence by learning about the United Nations sustainable development goals, The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and The One World Eco challenge to generate civic commitment to school, local, national and global communities. Our Fifth Graders visited the United Nations to learn all about it for a field trip. Our clubs are a network of globally aware youth leaders of character; knowledgeable of the world around them and capable of changing it for the better. Participation in a One World club helps prepare our global youth for the opportunities and challenges coming their way in the 21st Century. Students write essays on how to make Port Chester more beautiful for the annual Beatification Essay Contest, plant tulips and vegetables for the new Park Avenue School Pollinator and Vegetable garden started by Mrs. Maria O’Brien Park Ave ONe World Science teacher, and perform Power Up exercises so UNICEF can donate funds to local and global charities. Our club also made a video about what we learned in One World that was shared at the One World Event in China and at the After School Celebration the last week of May! We participate in the Park Avenue Success Night where all the school classes share their service-learning projects, and my club shares what they learned from One World on video. In June Park Avenue School will celebrate a ONE World End of year Global Citizen Cultural Celebration planned by Mrs. Heidi Marroquin, our Community School coordinator. It will be a wonderful year for One World at Park Avenue
