Trevor Hall, former President of the Creative Visions Foundation, is an experienced educator, writer, and business consultant. His expertise is founded on a Masters of Education from Harvard University, with a dual concentration in Learning and Teaching & Administration and Policy. After receiving his degree, he was awarded a three-year fellowship to serve as the Head Teaching fellow for Dr. Robert Coles, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author and professor. Trevor was a recipient of the Derek Bok Award for Excellence in Teaching in each of his three years at Harvard. In 2010, he edited a collection of Dr. Coles’ lectures into the book titled, Handing One Another Along, published by Random House.
Trevor was also the Founding Director of Open Roads Academy, a month-long summer program for low-income high school students that combines outdoor travel with an immersion in the documentary arts. Open Roads helps at-potential youth from low-income communities develop their ability to listen to the stories of others, and learn to become authors of their own life stories. Since its inception in 2001, more than 95% of the participants have graduated high school and gone on to college— compared to a rate of roughly 50% among their socio-economic peers.
