Thank you for your interest in One Community! This page is for those who are interested in becoming someone that works with us virtually only, also known as a Satellite Member. Like Pioneers, Satellite Members participate fully in all One Community creative processes including:
There are two primary differences between a Satellite Member and a One Community Pioneer. Satellite Members are not required to participate in weekly calls and they will not be moving to the property and/or owning or living on the property and therefore do not need to meet any of the property related requirements. They are also not a part of any property-related decisions.
If you are interested in becoming a Community Pioneer who moves onto the property, please fill out the Community Pioneer Invitation. If you are interested in helping on the weekends or partnering with One Community as a partner, consultant, or provider of technology or resources, please complete the One Community Consultant/Volunteer Form.
We see One Community as a template and prototype for addressing global food, housing, and energy needs, increasing global happiness, and ultimately establishing a new Golden Age of creativity, collaboration, and peace. We are an elite team building a bridge between pragmatism and idealism by open sourcing and free-sharing duplicable self-sufficient village plans that demonstrate a more fulfilled and enjoyable way of living that is also sustainable. Our intent in building this bridge is to redefine the global sustainability industry while creating something accessible to all people and adaptable to fit every kind of lifestyle, so that it becomes self-replicating and exponentially multiplies. Our goals are lofty, so we suggest you read this entire invitation and familiarize yourself with our mindset before beginning to complete it because the approach of this first model, and the requirements of the initial team who will build it, are significantly more specific than we expect almost any future model to be.
CONSIDERATION: We’re making the decisions on who will join us in our world-changing organization and global vision and mission based on just a few interviews and this form. The people we choose to be a part of our team effects the energy of how we all work together and collaborate as well as how we show up to the public. With this in mind, this application is long, really long. Please put aside some significant time so you can answer all these questions to the best of your ability.
We consider this form as much for the individual completing it as it is for us. With this in mind, we suggest you read the whole form first, exploring included links for more information, and really reflecting upon what is being asked and why before deciding to complete it.
If you are an applying couple, please do not collaborate when answering these questions. Each of us possesses our own beauty and insight. For the purposes of this form, we’d like to get a clear idea of who YOU are, where YOU are coming from, and where YOU want to go.
Please copy the questions below into an e-mail or Word Document (PLEASE NO PDFs), type your answers IN A DIFFERENT COLOR THAN THE QUESTIONS so they stand out, and email them to Sara at ONECOMMUNITYHOSPITALITY@GMAIL.COM. Please Include:
