One World’s Kidsreach Program has the goal to educate & inspire our youth with cultural arts performances & workshops. One World’s commitment to Austin and youth is stronger than ever, with world-class concerts, kids and family programming, multi-cultural in school assemblies, free shows for schoolchildren & social services organizations through-Storybooks Brought to Life, summer camp scholarship for military families, Berklee Scholar-ship Program for aspiring musicians, and more.

Thanks to our incredible, dedicated supporters, One World can provide free show tickets to child & family community organizations throughout Austin.




One World is the largest multi-cultural arts-in-education outreach in Austin and has served more than a million children since its inception in 1993. Before One World Theatre opened its doors, Hartt & Nada Stearns were taking multi-cultural music assemblies to Austin-area schools.  This outreach program continues today and features local artists from around the world



Using live theatre as a catalyst to motivate youngsters to read, One World inspires young readers in our “Storybooks Brought to Life” field trip program.  The theatre experience is longer lasting and more meaningful when youngsters are engaged in dialog; therefore, One World provides study guides incorporating show related activities that encompass language arts, geography, science and more!   Tickets to our kids programs are discounted to make them accessible for local schools, and also provided at no cost to our social service partners.



In just one week, campers go from auditions to opening night as they step on stage for a public performance as graduates of Camp One World! Led by national touring company, Missoula Children’s Theatre (link to, participants learn how to produce musical theatre from the inside out. Participants not only learn their roles, but are exposed to music, instrument building and art forms of diverse cultures from around the world, while they gain confidence in their ability to perform for family and friends on the One World Theatre stage!   

Through our Military Scholarship Program, “A World Apart, A Moment Together” One World is able to allow our enlisted service men and women currently overseas to view their children as they perform on stage during Camp One World. After the performance, each family has a private moment to speak face to face with their deployed loved one. We feel fortunate to be able to give back to our men and women in the armed forces by providing a program which keeps their families connected in their time of separation.



Music students who are considering professional status in the music industry are able to study with One World’s trained local music instructor, the PULSE method offered by the Berklee College of Music.  One World, as a non-profit Berklee partner (35 nationally), can audition up to five students  for scholarships to a five-week summer course at the Berklee College campus in Boston. One World, in partnership, is responsible for the winning student’s flights, and room & board for their week stay in Boston.
