When we understand the biology of self-worth, it changes the game of life forever.

Abandoned by both parents, tortured, forgotten, labeled and told by the age of 8 that he would never amount to anything – this was the beginning of Wesley Chapman’s shocking and torturous childhood. Wesley’s childhood would lead him on a mission to discover the frameworks of self-worth and create the building blocks of his success. By the age of 28 Wesley had built a successful business, catering to clients like Franklin Covey, A&E and Verizon.

3 years ago he co-founded A HUMAN PROJECT, an organization that empowers youth to learn how to create their own self-worth and rise above their circumstances. A HUMAN PROJECT has directly impacted the lives of more than 65,000 youth in 14 countries. Millions more youth have been reached by the messaging of A HUMAN PROJECT. A HUMAN PROJECT and Wesley are just in the beginning of creating this global movement – a movement to empower others to take control of their own self-worth and then provide sensational value to the world.
