The daughter of Holocaust survivors, Barbara Greenspan Shaiman, founder, shows us that each individual can influence change. In 1995, she founded Champions of Caring, a non-profit organization that empowered more than 10,000 youth in Philadelphia and South Africa to become leaders in public service and active, engaged citizens.
Barbara is author of two books, including Live Your Legacy Now: Ten Simple Steps to Find Your Passion and Change the World. With 30+ years of public speaking experience, Barbara partners with many types of organizations to promote a universal message, inspire and build skill sets of audiences motivated to address local and global issues. Given that $30 trillion is estimated to be transferred to younger generations within the decade, she emphasizes the importance of passing on one’s values and life’s lessons with wealth. Energetic delivery and influential messaging resonate with multiple generations and help to create cultures of caring.

Barbara Greenspan Shaiman has a passion for young people and for creating meaningful connections between generations. She has a wonderful story to tell about how people can become involved in their communities and help others, while becoming better people themselves. She has created a unique program to engage young people who might otherwise get lost in the system. I can think of no better way, especially at this time in America’s history, to reach out to the next generation. Through networking and encouraging others to volunteer, she has created a model for anyone looking for a way to give something back to society.Andrea Mitchell
“If future generations are to remember us more with gratitude than sorrow, we must achieve more than just the miracles of technology. We must also leave them a glimpse of the world as it was created, not just as it looked when we got through with it.”
– Lyndon B. Johnson
