Kielburger, Marc

Marc Kielburger is a co-founder of Free the Children. He and his brother saw a need to do something to help underprivileged children around the world, so they started up this influential NGO when they were teenagers. Their work shows that people of all ages can break the bonds of apathy and make a real difference, even in the most distant parts of the planet.

Free the Children has taken Crestwood students to many places, including a trip to Ecuador last year. This year we were fortunate to be able to welcome Marc to our school, where he spoke at an assembly for students from both the upper and lower schools on his important message of charity. Marc also sat down with several high school students for an interview for this Oral History Project.
