Spread the Word About Lifeplan

Deep thanks to all of you who have expressed excitement about my new book, A Plan for Life: Why Every Young Person Should Have a Lifeplan. You’re making this author pretty proud – as I am of everyone profiled in the book. What an inspiring journey Lifeplan continues to be!

Ever since I wrote the book’s predecessor in 2008 (Lifeplan: Tools Every Teenager Needs to Thrive, Not Merely Survive), all of us in the Lifeplan community have been immersed in a period of exciting – sometimes breathtaking - growth.

The Lifeplan ideas laid out in the first book have become the basis of a series of extremely successful young adult learning modules. We’ve realized that how we teach is crucial, and that the “discovery learning” notion that underpins Lifeplan – which encourages youths to share their dreams and actively engage in dialogue about their lives - really resonates with young people. The Lifeplan modules are now used in schools, mentoring programs, and sports clubs around the country. More and more educators, community leaders, nonprofits, and mentoring organizations are tapping into this scalable, cost-effective way to empower the young people they work with every day.

Many things have become crystal clear during this period of growth. For example, that Lifeplan has the power to create a societal shift. That it can help break the back of the debilitating social epidemics that plague our youth. That when young people have a “game plan” for life, they have a flicker of hope that can burst into a powerful flame of opportunity.

In a way, none of this should be a surprise. If we could give every young person a tool that ensured them a future replete with choices, a sense of security, and a new awareness about themselves and the world in which they live – wouldn’t that be an obvious path forward to success on so many levels? Absolutely! And I sincerely believe Lifeplan is that tool.

You can help grow this opportunity for young people! Click here or go to to order A Plan for Life: Why Every Young Person Should Have a Lifeplan. Help us spread the word about Lifeplan. Contact us to discuss ways to implement the Lifeplan program in your community.

Join us in contributing to the strength, diversity, and opportunity of our nation’s fabric – one child at a time.

All the best,
