The One Idea Foundation is a not-for-profit organization created as a joint initiative with Learn to Start (LTS), a global education solutions company.

Dedicated to student opportunity

The Foundation is dedicated to accelerating the opportunities for students to discover who they are while gaining experience that prepares them for their future work environment.

Our data shows that if we intrigue and excite students during school to engage in planning their career paths, they construct portfolios that support academic success while building life and job skills.
