CEO of The Future Project
Andrew Mangino is the co-founder and CEO of The Future Project, a fast-growing national education initiative to transform education and unleash a generation of dreamers—young people who are using their passions to change the world. Named one of Forbes “30 Under 30” Social Entrepreneurs—and a Draper Richards Kaplan Fellow—Andrew worked after college at Ashoka, where he helped launch Start Empathy; as the speechwriter for Attorney General Holder; and as a speechwriting intern to Vice President Biden. He graduated in 2009 from Yale University, where he covered the New Haven and education beats, served as the 130th Editor in Chief of the Yale Daily News, and won the Marshall Scholarship to study education and social innovation at Oxford. Passionate about the intersection of social entrepreneurship, human transformation, movements and messaging, and American history, Andrew and his team at The Future Project will be launching dream.org on 8/28/13, the fiftieth anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, to call upon Americans to take action to reimagine education and unleash the full possibility of the next generation.
