International Students


"One To World's community service events are a special treat for participants to discover the wonderful work being done by local organizations to empower communities."

Richard T., student from India at Yeshiva University




Volunteer Programs

Throughout the year we organize community service programs that allow international students to get involved and give back to the New York community. We partner with organizations to bring groups of international students to participate in projects such as beautifying city neighborhoods with murals, lending a hand on an urban farm and cleaning up the beach at Coney Island! Check out our program calendar to see current volunteer programs.

Several times a year, One To World needs help printing letters and assembling mail pieces or invitations for fundraising events. We announce these opportunities, as well as others, on our international student newsletter. Sign up for that here.
