what we do
We strive to provide state-of-the-art curriculum, training, and activities
to schools that embrace innovation in education
Access to Premium Local Resources
We connect students to charities, public service organizations, and local communities so that they can gain an in-depth understanding of Chinese society and help address local challenges
Experiential, Project-Based Learning
Our projects all follow the learning-by-doing principle; we design activities that are fun, challenging, and beyond the context of a traditional classroom
If you want your school's teachers to run such programs, our teacher training and ongoing support will help them do so
Meeting Curriculum Standard
If your school follows the IB program, many of our programs fulfill the requirements of CAS activities
Civic leadership program
Our Civic Leadership Program cultivates students' leadership potential and civic engagement via completing their own social innovation projects.
We provide tailor-made programs customized to meet the unique needs of each school. We offer different forms of leadership training, project-based learning, service activities, and extra-curricular activities.
Service learning program
In-depth service programs co-hosted with NGOs, in which students develop a deeper understanding of a social issue and create solutions to the NGOs' pressing challenges
By the end of the course, every student should have:
Design Thinking: The course is based on the innovative thinking tool "Design Thinking", which is used internationally to foster creativity.
Experiential & Project-Based Learning: Student teams will initiate and implement social innovation projects, going from zero experience to full execution of their projects over the course of the curriculum.
Flipped Classroom: Students learn from a 3-step model that fully leverages their autonomy
One Education provides the curriculum, manuals, teacher training, and teacher aids.

Customized programS showcase
We provide tailor-made programs customized to meet the unique needs of each school.
School needs: “a week-long program where our students can develop in-depth insights into societal problems and serve the community.”
An International School
Our solution: Students learned to address a social issue through completing primary and secondary research, visiting constituents and relevant NGOs, designing solutions to particular problems, and implementing the solutions. Each grade focused on a particular social issue (including aging population, cultural preservation, migrant worker children education, and water conservation).
One Education provided the curriculum, teacher training, and on-site guidance.
School needs: “a curriculum that drives students to put the concept of leadership into practice.”
An International School
Our solution: A one-semester course designed to cover the theory and practice of leadership, culminating in the completion of the students' leadership projects.
The course was facilitated by the school's teachers, with One Education providing the lesson plans, classroom materials, teacher's manuals, student handbooks, and teacher training.
School needS: "equip our teachers with knowledge on project-based learning so that they are capable of designing such courses in the future."
A Public School
Our solution: A series of workshops and ride-along training that took place through three phases which fostered teachers' understanding on the theory, background, process, pedagogical methods, implementation and case studies of project-based learning.
School needs: "How can we use the weekends to effectively increase our students’ interest in public issues and develop our students’ empathy skills?"
A Private School
Our solution: A one-semester weekend program, in which students paid weekly visits to a selection of public service agencies in order to better understand the agencies and the public issues they address. Ultimately, the students organized fundraising activities for the various agencies.
school needS: "Can you provide a one-day course so that new students can get to know one another, explore their leadership potential, and build their confidence?"
A Public School
Our solution: An 8-hour leadership training program, in which the students engaged in multiple team exercises and bonded with their peers.
