One World One Canvas is a 501c3 non-profit that began as a vision in 2011; since its conception, we have overseen many trips and given art workshops to thousands of underprivileged children, providing food and clothing as well. We have serviced hundreds of families with food for months and painted multiple schools and classrooms. In addition to service trips, OWOC offers fine arts trips. OWOC is funded through destination travel donations, community donations and student generated fundraisers.
One World One Canvas has created two full-length student-generated video documentaries and multiple photo documentaries. The Haiti photo documentary called “Peace, Love and Sneakers” won first place in a National Video contest. You are encouraged you to click on the following video link. It is awesome. https://vimeo.com/41367949
Many of the students’ photographs have earned awards. Please visit www.oneworldonecanvas.com for photographs and testimonials.
Adventure Trips: trips dubbed "adventure" include a lot of hiking, camping or similar exciting explorations.
Travelers outside of the Florida Keys are welcome to apply; these travelers will simply need to pay for travel expenses to join the group for the trip and may be required to skype or facetime trip meetings. We have had travelers from Indiana, New Jersey and California.
Travelers are chosen by rubric scored applications and then by a lotto drawing of the accepted applicants. The top scoring applicants are automatically enrolled in the trip. Immediate relatives of the OWOC board of directors, with passing applications, are automatically enrolled. The names of teenage applicants, with passing application scores, are put into a drawing. Higher scores enter the lotto earlier in the drawing process; non-teenage names will be added later in the drawing process.
OWOC has found this to be the most fair selection process, given that we cannot take every applicant. If your name is not drawn for the trip, you will be put on a waiting list in the order that your name was selected. Those not chosen may apply for future trips. Each time an applicant reapplies, points are added to the rubric score total, boosting the chance of your name bring drawn. In other words, if you don't make the first trip that you apply for, keep applying. OWOC wants you to travel with us!
All applicants will be notified via text or email whether or not, their name was drawn for the trip, within 1 month of the trip application due date.
