Casey is the co-founder of Teach North Korean Refugees, a non-profit organization based in Seoul, South Korea. They help North Koreans who escape the country (which is illegal) to learn English and other skills so they can start a new life.

Prior to going to South Korea, Casey graduated from Harvard, went traveling around Asia, then came back to Washington DC where he got involved in Education Freedom. Thanks to his work (and many others obviously), lots of children in low-income families - mainly black children - got access to a good education.
