In addition to looking at their personal histories, students will research famous individuals to see how people they don’t even know have a made a difference in their lives.

Brad Montague is a writer, director, and father who believes if kids and grown-ups work together, they can change the world. He is the creator of Kid President—the popular web series featured on SoulPancake’s YouTube channel—which he developed after being inspired by the young world changers at an annual summer program he and his wife, Kristi, founded. The two of them, together, make up Montague Workshop, working to cultivate empathy and imagination in kids and former kids through the power of stories.
