Character mentors...parents, grandparents, teachers, coaches, volunteers... are legacy practitioners. They leave behind a life story that lives beyond their own life. Character mentors realize that modeling and teaching character to the kids they can influence is the practice of one's search for significance. Is it important work to be a mentor for character? To answer that question, do four things: first ask: How do I want to bring personal influence to America's tomorrow? Second, identify the children you can mentor. Third, start. Fourth, don't stop!
