The Youth-on-the-Move International Educators’ Hall of Fame project started in 1993 in Sacramento, California. Its mission is to recognize the outstanding contributions and achievements of educators who were/are pioneers, founders, movers and shakers, and survivors. Most are retired, and all possess a sense of dedication and humanity that make them exceptional in the sight of their students and peers. They are positive mentors and role models for youth.
Over the past 20 years, 600 educators from 21 countries have been inducted into the Hall of Fame. Fifteen books containing biographical sketches depicting honorees’ accomplishments, turning points in life, and advice are used in schools, libraries, and other establishments to introduce students to mentors worthy of knowing. Their stories will live forever in the hearts of mankind, and, in the future Youth-on-the-Move International Educators’ Hall of Fame Museum. We encourage all to come; this Orange County induction ceremony will be an intergenerational delight.
