Event description

Description

One World needs your help! A long-time supporter has offered the organization its first challenge grant. Every donation from now until the end of the year will be matched dollar for dollar - up to $50,000! Please consider doubling the impact of your investment in helping DC youth learn to research and write college-level essays.

We’ve earmarked the money to pay for next year’s citywide Ambassador Challenge writing contest, including college scholarships, and to underwrite the costs of providing the new One World Digital Program to 2,000 DC students.

One World is kicking off this campaign with a back-to-school fundraiser: An Evening to Empower Student Voice. Please join us to celebrate with live music by the String Queens and the Blue Dot Jazz Troupe, hors d'oeuvres and drinks, and a silent auction, on the beautiful patio of Room & Board in the heart of Washington, DC.

One World Education believes in the power of having students choose their own social justice issue topics. Engagement soars when students write about issues relevant to their own lives. Each year, thousands of students across Washington, DC learn how to craft powerful argumentative essays. They learn to make claims, support those claims with hard evidence, rebut counterclaims and draw powerful, concise closing statements.
