One – Where The Connection Is Human
Who We Are
ONE is a non-profit organization. The premise is as simple as it is powerful. There is ONE recovery from all struggles and it resides in the connection of humans.
THE MISSION: ONE is dedicated to the inspiration of young people, their loved ones, and conscious members of the community looking to raise their awareness. There is no struggle necessary to attend; only a desire to be inspired.
THE HOW: ONE has three distinct lines of support; online, in-community and One On Campus.
The ONE Community
- Young People’s Meeting. A free weekly meeting that utilizes the lost art of conversation. We bring in Mavericks, Innovators, and Artists to share their path and passion.
- Parent Meeting. A place for parents, loved ones and conscious members of the community to simply expand and exhale.
- Speakers Series. All relevant topics are addressed by impassioned presenters who carry a message that can be heard.
- Events. ONE architects prolific experiences and events that are aimed at altering the course of lives.
- Assistance Line. Nationwide assistance line for parents offering viable resources.
One On Campus
ONE–On–CAMPUS. The multi-dimensional support program rooted in the power of human connection. We raise awareness and empower students.
- Lunchtime Drop–In. Students can recharge more than their phones in this safe space.
- Peer-led Support Groups. ONE trained faculty advisors follow the national ONE-On-Campus curriculum.
- The Exchange. An exclusive program of ONE. Exchange a suspension for attendance at ONE and gain so much more than was lost by a moment of bad judgment. The purest intent and definition of Restorative Justice available on campuses today.
