Meet Tom


Over the past 15-years, Tom has crisscrossed North America delivering HOPE and teaching empathy activation to students and educators. His dynamic energy is contagious and engaging. Tom’s impact is lasting and exactly the kind of critical Social and Emotional Learning message our young people need to hear.

Meet Rick


On September 1, 2006, Rick was part of a routine military mission in the Abu Ghraib region of Iraq. While on the mission, his armored vehicle was hit with an IED and the vehicle was engulfed in flames. 

Rick's story, although tragic in parts, is what has allowed him to become one of the world's HOPE experts. He now travels around speaking to students and giving them HOPE and perspective. Rick can honestly say he is happier than he has ever been in his entire life.
