Ben Klasky President and CEO SHOW BIO Ben grew up in Minnesota where he spent the majority of his time in the outdoors and, in the process, donated pints of blood to mosquitos in the Boundary Waters (and, admittedly, falling through the ice-twice!). Not only did he live to tell about it, it shaped his life-long dedication to helping get kids outdoors, learning and exploring. Ben is a serial entrepreneur. He is the co-founder of Camp Galileo, which has grown into the largest set of day camps in the BayArea. He taught in a severely under-resourced Louisiana school and worked at Teach For America in its early days. He also co-founded Board Fellows while earning his MBA and Masters in Education from Stanford. (Board Fellows places business school students on nonprofit boards, and has served as a model that has been replicated at over 75 other business schools.) Ben teaches a graduate class on Social Entrepreneurship at the University of Washington's Evans School of Public Affairs. He also teaches a graduate class on Nonprofit Management, and produced a video called Know Your Sector that has been used by many professionals to better understand the power of the nonprofit sector. Ben frequently gives talks to groups of any size, and facilitates board retreats to help other nonprofit organizations be as effective as possible. Ben has been an active volunteer throughout his life. He has led outdoor trips for children from New York's Harlem and Chinatown neighborhoods, mentored a young man from New York's Washington Heights neighborhood, and has served on numerous boards. Ben currently serves as the Board Treasurer for KUOW, Seattle's NPR affliate. He spends much of his free time working with his wife, restoring a log cabin on Puget Sound, and chasing after his 5 and 7 year old boys.
