WHO: Jonathan Catherman, founder and director of the 1M Mentoring Foundation.
HE SAYS: “I aim to lift all our youth up so they can successfully and effectively pick up where my generation left off.”
THE BIG IDEA: This book presents four crucial principles parents, educators and mentors need to pass on to today’s youth.
The books is broken down into four sections, each one representing one of the four principles the author discusses. Part 1, “Build Bridges,” encourages readers to cross the generation gap. Part 2, “Practice Stewardship Before Leadership,” explains to readers the importance of demonstrating responsibility so that more will be entrusted to them.
Part 3, “Transform Raw Talents Into Valued Strengths,” encourages young people to make the most of themselves. The book concludes with “Live With Purpose,” a section that challenges youth to fulfill their vision, mission and goals in life.
