About Free The Children
Free The Children is an international charity and partner with Jeunesse Kids™. Founded in 1995 by international activist Craig Kielburger, Free The Children believes in a world where young people are free to achieve their fullest potential and empowers youth to remove barriers that prevent them from being active local and global citizens. The organization’s domestic programs—which include We Day, Free The Children’s signature youth empowerment event—educate, engage and empower 2.3 million youth across North America and United Kingdom.
