Every Journey begins with One Step….
One Step Initiative (OSI) is a Memphis-based non-profit organization that offers study abroad programs to youth ages 15-18 from historically underserved high schools. OSI’s Global Pathways to Success (GPS) promotes life skills for education, career readiness and global citizenship through professional development tools and multicultural exposure.
We have introduced more than 1,000 people to the idea of youth global studies for minority students.
Since 2015, over 40 young people and chaperones from 19 Shelby County high schools have traveled through our programs, totaling more than 700,000 flight miles.
With your support in the A Community Thrives Challenge we will be able to increase the number of students exposed to international education through the GPS!
Funds raised with go towards the direct operation of OSI’s programs that are cultivating the next generation of leaders and innovators.
A community thrives with global education!
