John P. Carlos, senior consulting partner with The Ken Blanchard Companies, and Rick Miller, founder of Kids at Hope, collaborated on this exceptional book written to guide community, school, youth organizations, and parents in developing a culture that supports the success of every child, NO EXCEPTIONS. The book is a parable about possibilities...primarily the possibility of success. Kids at Hope is a belief system that turns around the current “youth at risk” paradigm.
