Title: Becoming the Next Great Generation: Taking Our Place as Confident and Capable Adults
Today's young people stand on the brink of unprecedented opportunity and influence. The problem is, many feel misunderstood and dismissed by older generations. Frustrated, they seek answers for how they can effectively influence change in the world when the gaps between generations grow wider and our shared experiences fewer. They want to make a difference, and they remain open to influence from adults who are willing to help them learn what they'll need to succeed.
With energy and unique expertise, Jonathan Catherman assures the next generation that their influence will come--with practice. Through relevant examples and clear applications, he shows youth from high school into emerging adulthood how to build bridges between generations, practice stewardship before leadership, transform raw talents into valued strengths, and live with purpose. By doing so, they can make a difference, do even better than their parents, and become the next great generation.
