About Tad Hargrave

In 1999, Tad founded Youth Jams. These week-long community building events continue to connect and support young, committed change-makers from all around the world. That project continues on without him – and a core group of facilitators from that project have joined together in a new project called The Global Collaborative. Between Sept 2004 – Feb 2006, Tad dedicated himself to learning his ancestral language, Scottish Gaelic, in both Nova Scotia and Scotland. He can speak Gaelic pretty good now. He also has a blog called “Healing Whiteness: An Exploration of the European Indigenous Soul.”
