"This book challenges you to reflect on values, beliefs, and your true purpose for working with kids, while providing guidance for those of us who trust that all youth are capable of taking on leadership roles, and that holistic growth can be achieved when youth are empowered to lead." - Frank Giosa, Health and Physical Education Director, West 40 Regional Safe School - Middle School, Chicago, IL

"Twenty-first century professionals in physical activity and sport are looking for guidance away from dysfunctional media-driven sport models, and toward approaches that are more child and youth centered. Martinek and Hellison are names we trust - they know kids . . .Their explanations are clear and down to earth, and their strategies are practical and ready to go." - Sarah Doolittle, Associate Professor, Department of Health Studies, Physical Education and Human Performance Science, Adelphi University
