About this title

Synopsis:

The Kindness of Strangers takes a hard, realistic look at mentoring while offering a vivid portrayal of the mentoring movement and how ordinary citizens in cities across America are trying to turn young lives around.

Book Description:

The Kindness of Strangers reveals how caring adults in cities across America are trying to turn young lives around. It also tells of the much-celebrated mentoring movement they have created. In a vivid portrayal of that movement, Marc Freedman shows how ordinary citizens can answer President Clinton's call for all Americans to reach out to the children who are growing up in poverty and community violence-all too often alone, exposed, and forgotten.Marc Freedman brings experience, research, and realism in an effort to present the truth about the mentoring movement sweeping America today.
