Youth Leaders: Compassion In Action
One Village Project
Since its inception in 2007, the One Village Project has seen 252 immigrant, immigrant, at-risk, local and refugee youth from 29 different countries unite as Peace Leaders in service to communities in need. With the help of 350 inspired volunteers, these youth leaders have impacted 1000+ people both here in Austin and abroad. The following community service projects were led by our youth leaders:
- Fed and clothed 150+ people at Austin Resource Center for the Homeless.
- Partnered with the Lower Colorado River Authority and Keep Austin Beautiful to clean up Town Lake.
- Spent time comforting patients at South Austin Care and Rehabilitation Center
- Cleaned up Bouldin Creek and the greenbelt in partnership with the Bouldin Creek Neighborhood Association and Austin Parks Foundation.
- Held a peace rally in honor of The International Day of Peace.
- Sent Video Love Letters to One Village members who were in the midst of war in Nigeria.
- Harvested food for the homeless in partnership with Urban Roots.
- Created care packages for the victims of the earthquake in Haiti.
- Painted a mural at Casa Marinella, a shelter for immigrants in Austin as well as Austin Children’s Shelter.
