Kids at Hope, 3rd ed.
Kids at Hope: Every Child Can Succeed, No Exceptions uses a narrative to tell the story of the Kids at Hope belief system and strategy. The adventures of the story protagonist, Robert Dawson, reveal the Three Universal Truths and their High Five Practices that support a child’s success.
This book emphasizes that everyone in the schools and the community, in the home and everywhere, should be responsible for kids’ successes. It also reveals that to succeed, kids need anchor parents—parents who absolutely love them unconditionally and are there to support them; kids need other caring adults (heroic figures); kids need high expectations and supportive adults who encourage kids to reach for goals that may, to the child, seem unattainable but are within reach, and kids also need opportunities to succeed.
In addition to higher education experiences, the authors have professional experiences as CEO of Kids at Hope and as management consultant, trainer, and motivational speaker.
