Tom Cruise is an activist and global ambassador for Applied Scholastics International. His work includes helping Applied Scholastics establish their 100-acre international teacher training institute and headquarters in St. Louis, Missouri.

As well, Tom’s relentless support of H.E.L.P. has changed the lives of more than 5,000 young people. For his work as a mentor for youth and as a Founding Board Member of H.E.L.P., Tom was honored by the National Mentoring Partnership with their Excellence in Mentoring Award in 2003.

“When I was about seven years old, I had been labeled dyslexic. I would go blank, feel anxious, nervous, bored, frustrated, dumb. All through school and well into my career, I felt like I had a secret.

“I was introduced to the writings of L. Ron Hubbard… and everything fell into place. I had a lot of catching up to do, but that was it! I realized I could absolutely learn anything that I wanted to learn.

“I don’t want people to go through what I went through. I want kids to be able to solve life’s problems.”

Anne Archer, Academy Award-nominated actress, is also a spokesperson for Applied Scholastics. Among her many activities for Applied Scholastics, she has raised funds for its community programs and has helped establish centers in Hollywood and Portland, Oregon.

"Sitting in our homes each evening we are bombarded by an avalanche of bad news. News that thrusts upon us this terrible plight that has reduced our schools to battlegrounds. Yet, I have personally seen ex-gang members reading with a thirst for knowledge, and a burning desire to catch up on the education they had missed. What can cause such a miraculous reversal? L. Ron Hubbard's Study Technology.

"Organizations such as the World Literacy Crusade and the Hollywood Education and Literacy Project are bringing about such miracles daily and even hourly."

John Travolta is a long time spokesperson for Applied Scholastics and Study Technology. John has tirelessly promoted the Study Technology of L. Ron Hubbard in the news media, on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., and through fundraisers in the private sector.

"Study Technology enabled me, someone who never finished high school, to achieve one of my greatest goals — to be a jet pilot. And not just that, but a jet pilot licensed to fly six different types of jet aircraft. I have also personally seen this miraculous mentoring tool bring hope and joy to the lives of many children whether in inner-city communities, schools or at home.

"I hope you'll take the time to find out more about Study Technology and Applied Scholastics. It might change your mind about the kind of future we can create for all our children."

Isaac Hayes, an Academy Award-winning musician, was the spokesperson for the World Literacy Crusade and remained an advocate and supporter of Study Technology until his passing in 2008.

"The thing that will determine the quality of life of our youth is their ability to read, write and communicate.

"What counts is how hard and how fast we work to give them these skills one by one. I have worked to help the World Literacy Crusade spread — first to church and community groups throughout Los Angeles, then to other cities and even other countries. We now have thirty groups operating in the US and around the world.

"We formed a partnership with the NAACP with the goal of establishing a World Literacy Crusade program in every city that has an NAACP chapter. Never in my life have I felt so optimistic that all our young people can have the chance they deserve to build a decent future."
