One World Youth Project began in 2004 as a small project to connect two middle schools from different countries to solve common problems. Through an innovative collaboration with Georgetown University and School-2-School—a project of Millennium Promise and Columbia University’s Earth Institute that connected US schools with African schools—the One World Youth Project developed a model for scaling its program through university hubs and expanding its program to elementary schools. Lodestar’s grant supported the collaboration.
