Chris is going Back 2 High School! Grateful for the foundation his mother provided him giving him the ‘Permission 2 Dream.’ The Chris Gardner Foundation has set a goal reach over 100,000 students from ages 13-18 in 2019. Chris will be speaking at 100 High Schools across the country in 2019. He will be talking to students about the lessons he learned as a child and how every person has the same opportunity to become what he or she dreams of.

On behalf of corporate America, Chris will provide fundamental tools that will open the eyes and hearts of tens of thousands of students, empowering them to see what is possible when they make the simple decisions. Through generous donations support systems such as in-classroom training and curriculum have been built so that the mission does not stop when Chris leaves.

Many students lives were changed today by listening to you speak - and I cannot thank you enough for this incredible opportunity.
— Noah Abrams, Clarksburg High School
