Brian Drayton



Brian Drayton is an educator, activist, and a pioneer of community change with nearly two decades of experience creating and implementing community programs, youth programs and curricula that authentically represents the educational and cultural needs of our community. His goal is to engage students and constituents in artful critical thinking with culturally and developmentally appropriate programs designed with youth and stakeholder input and direction. The experientially based learning process and curriculum that he builds into his programs encourages students to engage the process of learning, and to use natural models to assist in the understanding of how life works. He is the founder of Creative Children's Environments, and founder and Executive Director of RICHMOND SPOKES. Both of these Organizations were founded from the needs of the community around education, empowerment and developing sustainable partnerships built to support social, intellectual and economic growth.
