One Step Initiative (OSI) aims to bring global education opportunities to the nation’s most underserved high school students. Our vision is to be the number one study abroad provider in inner city high school education- granting students the experience of interacting and learning in an international environment through quality study abroad and service programs regardless of their socioeconomic status. Our goal is to equip youth with the tools and skills needed to succeed in a global economy.
OSI brings transformational learning activities to under-privileged youth
that would have never been afforded the possibility otherwise.
OSI’s Youth Global Ambassadors will develop a new understanding of they
can better serve their own communities. Upon return they’ll each work to
facilitate service learning projects and help five of their peers
in expanding global awareness. In turn they will create a never-ending chain of support for everyone to get the help they need. Help give someone a chance to be great.
We believe that experience-based learning is a powerful way to connect people and ideas. At the heart of every OSI trip are well thought-out interactive activities which cultivate reflection and experiential learning. Our goal is to equip youth with the skills and tools needed to succeed in an interdependent world.
