Full-time, year-round position

What is One Stone?

One Stone is a student-led and directed Idaho nonprofit with a mission to make students better leaders and the world a better place. We are founded on the belief that students can make a real difference when empowered to follow their passions. One Stone started with a handful of high school students in 2008 and has now grown to more than 200 student team members from 17 different high schools across the Treasure Valley.


One Stone is widely recognized as a unique, innovative, student-centered, and highly successful student development organization. Our members actively participate in the governance and direction of the organization by serving on and leading the Board of Directors and Board Committees. Students develop power skills through three innovative platforms (and our recently launched school) that provide deep, project-based learning in connection with innovative initiatives, social entrepreneurship, and experiential service.


One Stone built upon the success of our community based programs in September 2016 by launching a school built on our values: experiential service, community, ownership, empathy, equality of voice, innovation, and creativity. Our model is rooted in design thinking, which we teach and use in learning. At One Stone’s school students focus on four areas of development:

Knowledge: How might we understand the world?

Creativity: How might we approach challenges?

Skills: How might we develop tools for life?

Mindset: How might we practice with intention?

Intertwined through each of these is the fundamental value in Voice: How might we express who we are with confidence?
