This generation of students who have grown up in the 21st century are the most social, the most empowered, and also the most anxious youth population in human history. If you are struggling to connect with and lead them, you are not alone. The latest research presented in this book, however, illuminates a surprising reality: The success of the next generation doesn’t depend entirely on them. Their best chance of success starts when adults choose to believe in them, challenge them, and walk with them through the nine greatest challenges today’s youth will face. For their sake, and for the future success of our world, it’s time we started seeing Generation Z—unfiltered.

From decades of research and hands-on experience, Dr. Tim Elmore and Andrew McPeak collate their conclusions into one resource that helps adults:

•Understand the differences between Generation Z and previous generations – including the Millennials (Generation Y)

•Discover the nine unique challenges that Generation Z is currently facing and how you can help them practically address each one

•Develop coping skills in students to help them overcome their high levels of stress and anxiety

•Cultivate grit and resilience in young adults that will allow them to bounce back from future setbacks

•Apply proven, research-based strategies to equip teens and young adults to reach their potential
