    Biography Read more

    Craig Kielburger is a social entrepreneur, New York Times best-selling author, and syndicated columnist. He co-founded Free The Children in 1995 when he was 12-years-old. Craig was invited to speak to larger and larger groups. And, as a 12-year-old, he took a journey to South Asia to see poverty and child labor first-hand. This much-publicized fact-finding mission included a now infamous encounter with the Prime Minister of Canada.

    Today, he remains a full-time volunteer for the organization, which has become the world’s leading youth-driven charity. What began as a group of kids working out of a garage now has more than 1.7 million young people involved in its programs.

    Craig is also the co-founder and co-CEO of Me to We, an innovative social enterprise. Me to We provides people with better choices for a better world, including socially conscious and environmentally friendly clothes and accessories, life-changing international volunteer trips, leadership training programs and materials, an inspirational speakers’ bureau and books that address issues of positive change. In addition, half of Me to We’s net profit is donated to Free The Children, while the other half is reinvested to grow the enterprise and its social mission.

    Craig is the author of 12 books. His newest book, The Power of We Day: Moving the World From Me to We, debuted in fall 2013. With his brother, Craig writes “Global Voices,” a weekly column about the pressing issues of our time, syndicated in various newspapers including the Vancouver Sun, Halifax Chronicle Herald, Calgary Herald, Edmonton Journal, and Winnipeg Free Press. The Kielburgers also write a bi-weekly advice column on addressing social causes in the Globe & Mail called “Brain Storm.” They are also weekly contributors to The Huffington Post.

    Craig holds a degree in Peace and Conflict Studies from the University of Toronto and is the youngest-ever graduate of the Kellogg-Schulich Executive MBA program. He has been awarded 15 honorary doctorates and degrees, and has received the Order of Canada, the Roosevelt Freedom Medal, the World Children’s Prize for the Rights of the Child, and the Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Award for Dedication. His work has been featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show, 60 Minutes, as well as in National GeographicTIME, and The Economist.

    In fall 2013, Craig and his brother Marc were inducted into Canada’s Walk of Fame for their humanitarian efforts and their work to empower youth to change the world.
