Meet the Team

Greg Sommers

Educational consultant,
Professional trainer & facilitator

Rather than offering a quick-fix solution, Greg weaves together scientific research, experiential education practices, and his own history working in schools to shape an experience for people to become self-aware of their own core needs and build meaningful relationships. 

Years ago, Greg discovered an insight that has become his driving force… “Connection is the key … and the keys to connection are compassion and understanding.” Knowing everyone needs connection, he decided to make this world a more compassionate and understanding place by meeting people where they are and building them up from the inside out, one person, team, or community at a time.

In 2009, Greg started The Core Project, through which he serves schools to create safe and protective environments by providing insightful staff training, student leadership development, and student assemblies. Greg is a graduate of Lewis-Clark State College with a degree in social work and lives in Rathdrum, ID.
