Five Research-Based Methods to
Help Teens Beat Stress and Anxiety
According to a study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, researcher Dr. Michael Leahy found "that anxiety has increased so much that typical schoolchildren during the 1980's reported more anxiety than child psychiatric patients did during the 1950's." Research from Dr. Jean Twenge released in 2017 found that there has been a sharp rise in anxiety over the last five years. Today, the Center for Disease Control tells us that about one in five teens will experience an anxiety attack or some other mental health disorder.
To help address this issue, we’ve curated months of research to create this eBook entitled Stressed Out. In essence, we want to give adults practical ways to help teens overcome stress and anxiety. We hope this free eBook helps you lead the next generation.

New Generation with
Ethics and morality have been controversial subjects for more than fifty years. Each year the latest technology introduces us to opportunities that spark expanding ethical “gray areas,” especially for the next generation. Now, research from the University of Notre Dame says, “approximately two in every three young adults, ages 18-24, no longer believe there is an absolute right and wrong.” The reality is that in today's world there is less black and white and instead many shades of gray.
To help address this challenge, we’ve created this free eBook. In essence, we want to give adults practical ways to help today's teens and young adults clearly define what ethics and values they want to live by.

Preview of A Manifesto for Growing Leaders on Your Campus
Today, it isn’t enough for schools to create a one-time leadership training event or program. It’s insufficient to host a conference for leaders in the fall and hope that students will remain equipped and motivated to carry out their leadership positions during that school year. In reality, we’re not sure if that ever worked. Leadership development must be organic, flowing from the very culture of the campus. A leadership bias must be in the DNA of the administration; it must be central to the organizational values and implemented in a plan that flows out of the lives of those nearest to the students.
