We’re now proud to provide a series of short videos in our growing collection of Classroom Connections. These each begin with an introduction for each grade level to be shared at any time.
We suggest starting with the introduction video below and following up with any of the topics you choose from our growing video collections. We’re working to increase our topic library and welcome you to send us an email with suggestions for additional video topics!

2020 Vision Quest’s school presentations, delivered by Randy Pierce, integrate life lessons with engaging stories of his progress managing adversity. Randy learned to thrive not just in spite of challenge but also in fact because of it. His captivating approach provides essential insights and inspiration to students of all ages and grade levels.
Randy has presented to over 100,000 students since founding 2020 Vision Quest in 2010, and we’re planning and building capacity to reach tens of thousands more!
As you embark on a challenging new school year we’re here to help! We continue to adapt and build—now offering three approaches to better support all educators and students:
This question challenged Randy from the moment he started to go blind in 1989. The question motivated, inspired, and frustrated him, pushing him harder than he ever would have thought he could endure. This drove him to realize that you truly don’t need to see to have a vision – or to make that vision a reality.
It’s also the first question that Randy challenges students to consider in his powerful classroom presentations. Students respond enthusiastically to Randy’s passionate approach to inspiring and awakening young minds to envision the possibilities that lie beyond their own challenges. By prompting students to think, “What can I accomplish?” he leads them to realize that it’s within their own power to define, embrace, and achieve any goal.
While we welcome donations or honoraria, we provide Randy’s presentations at no cost to classrooms and youth organizations in or near southern New Hampshire. For more distant locations we can discuss travel possibilities or are glad to deliver Randy’s message via the virtual experience. With the March 2020 arrival of COVID-19 in the U.S., as early as later that spring we began to see the great new benefit of being able to reach students virtually in all 50 U.S. states!
We work with your school to ensure that the schedule, duration, and points of emphasis are ideal for your needs. Students at age ten or younger receive emphasis on diversity, guide dogs, and believing in themselves. Presentations to ages eleven and older include additional focus on life lessons for managing adversity and choosing paths toward a successful and positive life.
