“Know us. Know your students’ names. Know who they are,” he said matter-of-factly, while leaning back in his chair, bouncing a tennis ball, and avoiding eye contact.
Often when we hear the word “vulnerable,” we associate it with some sort of negative idea or experience. It can bring to mind weakness, disenfranchisement, or lack of protection. Consider the expressions “vulnerable members of society,” “vulnerable to infection,” “vulnerable before the committee of her peers.”
Join us Sat. Feb. 4th at 6pm for the One Event–an evening of inspiration in support of One Stone! Funds raised at this event help us offer all of our after school programming at no cost to kids or their families–because everyone should have the opportunity to become a better leader & make the world a better place!
How do you take the message of student voice to the global level? You break a world record! Team One Stone undertook a massive creative effort to take our message of “disrupt for good” to a whole other level with the world’s largest mosaic mural made entirely out of Post-It Notes. Three days, hundreds of volunteers, and thousands of sticky little office supplies made for a powerful statement of what’s possible when a community of people come together to create something BIG.
One Stone makes students better leaders and the world a better place – with the help of the community. One Stone does not charge any membership dues or fees to ensure that all students, regardless of ability to pay, can access our programs. We believe the opportunity to change the world should not be related to economic background or financial standing.
One Stone and the Idaho PTECH Network, together with Trailhead Boise, will stage the first PlayTech, a two-day gaming, hacking and coding event designed to inspire high school students from across the state to pursue an education and career in the tech industry in Idaho. The hands-on event will feature speakers from the high tech and start-up industry, as well as peer-to-peer coaching opportunities for high school students.
One Stone Board members and staff trekked off into the mountains of Idaho for three days for this year’s Board retreat, themed The Amazing Retreat! In the tradition of the Amazing Race, students broke into teams to take on challenges that ranged from one minute One Stone pitches, to Flags of the World identification competition, to on-the-spot team cheers. When not in neck-and-neck competition mode, people were in the water, cheering on first-time wake boarders and wiping out on tubes pulled over wakes.
One Stone Champions are the adults who help us make students better leaders and the world a better place. Through the Champions’ support of One Stone, we’re able to grow our capacity to do more and engage in the community at a larger scale. Additionally, Champions bring critical professional and skills-based knowledge and expertise to our team.
