According to an article in Resurgence magazine: "Charlie Murphy is the co-founder of a remarkable youth programme called The Power of Hope, which has been running summer camps for teenagers in the Northwestern United States and in British Columbia for the last twelve years. This programme is now coming to Britain, with the name LIFEbeat; the first camps are scheduled for August 2008. Charlie’s work has been recognised internationally through his election to an Ashoka Fellowship, making him part of a worldwide association of leading social entrepreneurs. Here he talks to Rupert Sheldrake, whose teenage sons have attended Power of Hope camps in Canada for several summers."

"The Power of Hope was founded in 1996 by Charlie Murphy and Peggy Taylor out of the belief that young people — regardless of their circumstances — are an untapped resource for community renewal and social change." [1]
