    Summary

    OneWorld Now!’s vision is that all young Americans have access to transformative international education. Through our year-round, Seattle-based Global Leadership Program, we integrate critical language learning, leadership training, and study abroad scholarships with a focus on minority and low-income high school youth. Thanks to STARTALK, OWN has offered a three-week Arabic, Chinese, and Korean summer program for each of the last ten years, with follow-on language classes available through the OWN academic yearlong program. In our twelfth year offering the STARTALK summer immersion program, we will hold another three-week-long, non-residential Arabic, Chinese, and Korean language immersion program for non-heritage high school students in Seattle. The program includes 15 six-hour days, for a total of 90 contact hours. The desired outcome of the STARTALK-OWN Summer Language Camp will be to introduce 51 students to Arabic, Korean and Mandarin Chinese, and to motivate them to continue their language and cultural studies.
