DAVID MISCAVIGE | A BIOGRAPHY
SPEARHEADING GLOBAL HUMANITARIAN INITIATIVES
Mr. Hubbard long held that spiritual freedom both contributes to and stems from a belief in the brotherhood of Man. From precisely this vantage point, Mr. Miscavige tirelessly works to extend Mr. Hubbard’s social betterment technologies to all people of the world. Through the process, he has brought the technology of L. Ron Hubbard and the dedication of Scientologists to bear on what most troubles Man, including drug abuse, illiteracy, immorality and disasters, both natural and manmade. (See: Planetary Social Betterment)
As the standard-bearer for these broad-scale humanitarian movements, Mr. Miscavige has overseen Church sponsorship of international headquarters for these initiatives. These centers include Narconon Arrowhead in Oklahoma, established in 2001 as the premier facility of the worldwide Narconon drug rehabilitation and prevention network. It is the world’s largest residential facility of its kind and also serves as the international training center for drug rehab specialists.
To make L. Ron Hubbard’s solutions to illiteracy widely available, the Applied Scholastics International headquarters and training center was opened in 2003 on a 100-acre campus in Missouri. Teachers from 48 nations have received training there and in turn have implemented Study Technology through more than 1,000 schools and groups in 74 nations, significantly raising reading levels wherever it is applied.
To respond to a general decline in personal and group morals in this modern age, The Way to Happiness Foundation International headquarters opened in 2003 in Glendale, California. Over 100 million copies of the common-sense moral code, The Way to Happiness, have been produced and distributed in 105 languages across more than 150 nations, bringing greater happiness and harmony to individuals and societies.
In addition to these centers for social change, Mr. Miscavige has spearheaded global humanitarian programs, all of which are made freely available in over a dozen languages. These include The Truth About Drugs, the world’s largest nongovernmental drug education and prevention campaign; the Church-sponsored worldwide Human Rights Education Campaign promoting the 30 articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the Scientology Volunteer Ministers Program which provides disaster aid in every corner of the globe.

In these, and a myriad of other ways, Mr. Miscavige is realizing L. Ron Hubbard’s intention to provide the broad-scale help Mankind so urgently needs. In the process, he has provided worldwide humanitarian initiatives that Scientologists are immensely proud to support.
It is Mr. Miscavige’s unwavering adherence to L. Ron Hubbard’s vision that has propelled Scientology so far and so fast in but a quarter of a century. It is what will continue to ensure the growth of this religion and what will finally bring about a world where all may rise to greater heights.
Such was the dream of L. Ron Hubbard and such is the work of David Miscavige.
