Co-founder of the WE Organizations, New York Times Best-Selling Author

Co-founder of the WE Organizations, which includes WE Charity, ME to WE Social Enterprise and WE Day, Social Entrepreneur/Humanitarian/New York Times Best-Selling Author

Since the age of 12, Craig has been inspiring people to make a difference and helping them connect with their purpose.

His incredible life journey starts in his parents’ living room, and takes him to slums around the world, to Oprah’s couch, to building a global organization that has helped millions lift themselves out of poverty.

A powerful, internationally acclaimed speaker, social entrepreneur, and New York Times bestselling author and author of 12 books, including his newest book WEconomy: You can find meaning, make a living, and change the world, Craig will inspire your group to take steps toward making a meaningful impact right now.

When Craig was 12, he was shocked to learn about the murder of a child labourer-turned-child rights activist. Eager to take action, he established Free The Children to help free children from poverty, exploitation and powerlessness. The organization began as a small group of classmates and quickly evolved into an international phenomenon.

A sought-after speaker, he has shared the podium a number of times with former U.S. president Bill Clinton, as well as with such world renowned leaders as Nelson Mandela, Queen Noor, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and the Dalai Lama.

Craig has shown the world that no one is ever too young to make a difference. His work has been featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show, CNN, CBC, BBC, 60 Minutes and profiled in The Economist, Time and People magazines and numerous newspapers.
