Brilliant Minds Program
Our founder, Jeri Brooks was raised to serve the community and has carried that tradition into the offices of One World. The Brilliant Minds program is a part of an expanded vision to provide support to deserving high school students. Currently, One World offers two distinct "Brilliant Minds" programs.
Brilliant Minds Annual Scholarship honors a female student pursuing a career in communications who displays strong character, maintains good grades and aspires to be a good human deeply committed to making the world a better place. This gift is a part of an expanded vision to provide financial support to deserving high school students pursuing higher education.
Since the inception of Brilliant Minds the program has expanded to offer paid and unpaid internships to college students.
2015 Sure Thing, Inc. 5 Students One World did not receive applicants for the 2015 scholarship so instead we partnered with Sure Thing, Inc. providing financial support of their annual college tour project. Our efforts assisted five students in making the Florida trip.
The Brilliant Minds Internship is offered every semester to students pursuing careers in the political and/or communications industry.
We provide both paid and college credit experiences. While there have been too may interns to remember of the years, below you will find some
