We Are Family

Our Team

Free The Children is a leader in the field of global change. Our staff feels the same way.

We provide recent graduates with incredible challenges and opportunities for growth.

Most of the talented individuals who make up our senior team at Free The Children have been with us since we were a group of wide-eyed and idealistic teens and 20-somethings. Together, we have grown to become one of the world’s most respected platforms for social change.

WE are family.

We strive to make sure that our incredible team has opportunities for growth and advancement, including professional development, mentorship from corporate and charitable leaders, and the ability to tackle unprecedented and world-changing challenges.

But what makes the Free The Children team so special and atypical is that we have grown up together and traveled the globe together. We have attended each other’s graduations, birthdays, marriages, and recently, the birthday parties of our sons and daughters.

We have laughed together and cried together; we are loyal and we know what it means to have each other’s backs.

Money is not our motivation. Instead, we are collecting stock options in a better world. We are building a lasting legacy for our children and ourselves.

WE are family.
