The School Days Foundation was borne out of Dr. Eric Thomas' commitment to the advancement of students, educators, and their communities.
With over 20 years of real-life, in-the-trenches community activism experience, Dr. Eric Thomas is living proof of what tenacity, drive, and focus can produce when properly applied; especially in the classroom.
Since our inception in 2014, we have touched the lives of millions of students through our free motivational content on YouTube, school- based programs and events, and on-demand curriculum. The relationships that we have developed with educators, youth leaders, and parents have moved the needle in the right direction for some of the country's most troubled students and school districts.
And we're just getting started...
Our mission is to create, implement, and support programs, events, and initiatives that seek to eradicate those apathetic, poverty mindsets which inhibit and handicap our future world changers’ social, emotional, and academic growth.
Empower and equip the next generation of leaders and influencers, one student, one parent, one educator, and one community at a time.
