An organization that believes in a world where all young people are free to achieve their fullest potential as agents of change, that works to empower youth to remove barriers that prevent them from being active local and global citizens, was a topic of discussion on Wednesday's Mike Bastineeli show.

Free The Children's founder, Craig Kielburger, talked about how he founded the agency in 1995 when he gathered 11 school friends to begin fighting child labor. He was 12.

Today,  Free The Children is an international charity and educational partner, with more than 1.7 million youth involved in our innovative education and development programs in 45 countries.
