Did you know that a 13-year old boy saved seventeen lives during Hurricane Harvey?

 

Do you realize that a third grade girl sewed over a hundred blankets for people who needed them?

 

Have you heard of the teen who invented a flashlight powered by human body heat? She was helping a friend who had no electricity. Did you know that a five your old kid led a group of toddlers to safety after Hurricane Katrina? Young people are doing amazing things all the time. Instead of thinking they need to wait until they’re older, they’re jumping into action now, as if to say: “I can’t wait!”.

 

This book is loaded with fascinating stories of kids—just like your child—who didn’t wait for someone else to solve problems or serve people. These kids, ages 5 to 24, showed the rest of the world what can be done by youth who catch a vision. These stories are designed to spark conversations between family members, teachers and students, coaches and athletes and youth leaders and kids.

 

After each story there are discussion questions and a link to watch a video on the person you just read about. Every kid has said at some point: “I can’t wait!” Now, read some stories of kids who said that and then changed their world.

Ready for Real Life: Unpacking the Five Essential Soft Skills Great Leaders Instill in Their Students

Unpacking the Five Essential Soft Skills Great Leaders Instill in Their Students
Our technology-fueled world is faster and more convenient than ever, but are we better for it? The evidence now shows that for our youngest population — Generation Z — life has not gotten better. They are the most social generation in history, but they are also the loneliest.

They are the smartest generation in history, but they also struggle in basic social interactions. They have more opportunities than ever before, but they tend to feel overwhelmed rather than empowered. And students aren’t the only ones who are struggling. Shorter attention spans, shifting learning styles, standardized test preparation, and continuously changing policies, are all creating frustrations for educators as well.

To address these challenges, the world’s greatest educators and leaders are changing their strategy. Instead of just emphasizing grades and tests, these leaders focus on instilling their students with skills they can use to make more positive life choices for themselves. These timeless soft skills go by many names in the modern world, but no matter what we call them, they all lead to one outcome: young adults who are ready for real life.
Ready for Real Life defines the five core soft skills all students need.

Using compelling stories and practical insights, this book shows how these five skills, though timeless in human history, are still our best strategy to prepare young adults for the 21st century.
