Biography

Marc Kielburger is the co-founder of Free The Children, a unique international development and youth empowerment organization. Since 1995, Free The Children has become the world's leading youth-driven charity, inspiring an entire generation to stand up and have their voices heard.

With the involvement of 3,500 Youth in Action chapters and schools, Free The Children has built more than 650 schools throughout Asia, Africa, and Latin America, providing daily education to more than 55,000 children in 16 countries. Through its Adopt a Village development model, it has established more than 30,000 alternative income projects to assist women and their families in achieving sustainable incomes.

One of Free The Children's most notable projects has been a joint initiative with Oprah Winfrey's Angel Network called O Ambassadors. The project was designed to educate, engage, and inspire more than one million young people across North America to take action to help their underprivileged peers overseas.

Mr. Kielburger is also the co-founder of Me to We. This social enterprise encourages ethical living and social responsibility, while also aiming to bring Free The Children's already low administrate rate to 0%, ensuring every penny goes to charitable programs. Me to We includes carbon-neutral international volunteer travel programs, leadership camps, a publishing house, a music label, and the largest organic made-in-Canada clothing line.

Marc Kielburger graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University, completing a degree International Relations. He won a coveted Rhodes Scholarship and went on to complete a law degree at Oxford University with an emphasis on human rights law. He has also received four honorary doctorates for his work in the field of education and human rights.

Mr. Kielburger is the co-author of three national bestsellers. His latest book, The World Needs Your Kid: Raising Children Who Care and Contribute will be released across North America in the fall of 2010 and features a foreword by His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

Together with his brother Craig, Marc Kielburger is a syndicated columnist carried by the Toronto Star, Vancouver Sun, Huffington Post, and Canada's most widely read women's magazine, Canadian Living.

Marc Kielburger is the recipient of many honors, including the Order of Canada and selection by the World Economic Forum as one of 250 Young Global Leaders. His work has been featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Colbert Report, CNN, and BBC as well as many other news and print media.
