650,000 Hours

The average human life lasts just 650,000 hours and Ken Budd, award-winning author of The Voluntourist, wants you to make the most of every minute. The 650,000 Hours concept was born from Ken’s volunteer-work travels around the globe. Naturally, his extensive journeys provoked some universal, soul-searching questions along the way. What does it mean to be human? What is our purpose?


In 650,000 Hours, Ken will answer those questions by discovering people across America who are changing the world while maximizing the quality of their own time on Earth. In vivid illustration of that spirit, He’ll share their stories, their motivations and their missions in a streaming video series, a podcast, and in an upcoming book, also titled 650,000 Hours.


650,000 Hours is currently in development.
