The dramatic, real-world experiences of hard-to-reach youth inspire these vivid and compelling essays on effectively connecting with disengaged children. Written by an ex–gang member and former unreachable kid, the jargon-free approach helps adults be intentional about engagement and turn seemingly dire situations into inspirational success stories. Underlying each account is an emphasis on the need for a focused, ongoing dialogue with at-risk young people about their unique strengths and opportunities to be healthy, vibrant members of society--against all odds. The positive method embodies Search Institute's 40 Developmental Assets™ and includes five detailed asset-building suggestions.
