I'm Franklin Oliver, Founder and CEO of Good Trouble Solutions.
Through many years as a high school teacher, students have asked me fascinating questions about my beliefs. The core answer is always the same: I am pro-humanity. That's been the point of my education and career. It's also why GTS exists. Let's make the world better one school, community, and business at a time.

"When I was in Japan on a Fulbright, I learned that people there could be referred to as “living national treasures.” If anyone I have worked with recently were deserving of such recognition, it would be Franklin Oliver."

"Franklin... in today's sermon we were challenged to think of people we know who are prophets of our time. You immediately came to mind.
Blessings to you in your "ministry"!"
"...once again thank you so much for all the love and efforts you put into your work. it doesn't go unnoticed and truly helps even years after!"
