Overview

Overview

For over 25 years, One World Center, has been training people to work in humanitarian careers. Our goal is to enable ordinary individuals to fight against poverty and to become climate activists. Many One World Center graduates have gone on to impressive humanitarian careers including working with the United Nations, US AID, and some of the top non-profits in the United States and abroad. Our volunteer humanitarian work abroad uses Participatory Action Research (PAR) to create value-filled programs.

At One World Center we offer 6, 9 and 18 month work/study programs on site in both The USA and Africa. We have 3 Brazil teams starting a year and 4 Africa teams starting as well as monthly 1-6 months courses in Climate Compliance. Health care in the form of Child Aid and HIV/AIDS prevention. Education in Children villages, Teacher training colleges. Organizing and implementing farmers clubs. Sustainable systems for water, energy and living.

Our 9-month programs have three parts. Parts 1 and 3 of each program take place at the Michigan campus in the United States. In between, volunteers visit Zambia, Malawi, Mozambique, or Brazil. While abroad, volunteers work as climate activists, farmers, and/or teachers. In total our 9-month volunteers spend 5 months in the United States and 4 months abroad.

Similarly, our 18-month programs begin and end in the United States. The work abroad occurs in Africa or Brazil for 6 months in the middle of the 18-month program. At One World Center we give volunteers certificates to prove the work they performed. You can receive a certificate as a Development Instructor and a distant learner. For those who can’t participate in the long-term programs, we offer 6-month service opportunities.
