School Tours of John's Crazy Socks

John’s Crazy Socks School Tour Program

What better outing for a class than an hour or two of happiness and wonder at John’s Crazy Socks. We welcome school tours so students can see where we make the happiness happen. They can see the socks and how we make each package special for our customers.



We can arrange actual tours of our office/warehouse in Melville, New York or virtual tours via Skype.

Every day, we demonstrate what’s possible when a person is given a chance. John may have Down syndrome, but that has not stopped him from starting his own business and working hard in that business. Sharing what’s possible is part of our mission to spread happiness.

As part of our empowerment commitment, we have created a School Tour Program at our office and warehouse in Melville, New York. We can also arrange virtual tours via Skype so students from across the country and the world can visit John. We invite school groups, particularly special education groups, to come for a visit. Like everything else we do, the school tours will be fun, educational and inspiring:

  • Learn what it means to start a business and to be an entrepreneur
  • Learn what it means to follow your dreams and passions
  • Learn about some of the jobs that are open to you

Our School Tours

We will provide a full program for visiting students:

  • John will provide a welcome
  • John and Mark will tell the story of John’s Crazy Socks and how we came to grow the business
  • John will give a tour of our office and warehouse
  • We will provide a demonstration of some of the jobs in our business, including:
Picking socks to fill orders
Assembling materials for our packages
Putting stickers on socks
Putting candy in our packages
Counting socks for inventory
  • We will make a short video with John and the class that we will share on our Facebook page

No one will go home empty-handed. As a thank you gift, we will give each student a Gift Bag with a pair of socks, candy, discount cards and information.

The program will last one to two hours.

Who Should Attend this School Tour Program

The School Tour will connect with anyone interested in John’s Crazy Socks and how to start your own business. We have developed this program for high school special education classes, but this is not limited to only special education classes. The School Tour will work well for business classes, entrepreneur classes, and clubs and other classes or clubs interested in business. At this time we will host groups in High School and older.

Our experience finds that we cannot handle more than 10 students per physical visit, though virtual tours can accommodate any size class.

We will take photographs and videos, so you must have authorization allowing us to use the student images. Click here to read our Media Release Form.

There is no charge for the School Tour. (Free is good.) No one will go home empty-handed. As a thank you gift, we will give each student a Gift Bag with a pair of socks, candy, discount cards, and information.
