Kidspiration Cool Jobs Video: Blake Mycoskie, Founder of TOMS Shoes

Entrepreneur and activist Blake Mycoskie, founder of TOMS shoes, is featured in this fascinating and insightful video for student career education. 14-year-old Emmett from the Kidspiration team talks with Blake about his experience building a successful company that also gives back - TOMS has donated more than 60 million pairs of shoes around the world with the "One for One" program. Your students will learn about the passion, drive, and individuality necessary to be an entrepreneur, as well as the motivation behind building and contributing something bigger than themselves.

This video can be used as part of a jobs and careers unit, as a supplemental resource for career counseling, or as a supplement for an arts, media, or technology curriculum. It can also be used to support a career and technical education track for middle school students.
