Good Kids the Story of Artworks, author & community leader
Mike Peringer, presents an integrated, principle-centered approach
for creating social change. Based on the true story of ArtWorks, a
Seattle nonprofit organization designed to empower at-risk youth through
professional opportunities in the Arts, Good Kids charts
the amazing results that occur when community leaders and juvenile
justice centers work together to re-incorporate at-risk youth back
into the community.
Good Kids, Mr. Peringer discusses exactly what it took to
get the program going, shares it's success stories as well as it's
failures, and inspires others to act by providing key advice on how
to implement similar programs in your own community. Interspersed
throughout the book are lively inspirational stories, many written
by youth and inspired by the kids that benefited from ArtWorks. These
stories offer a glimpse into the actual experiences of the youth that
participated in the program.
Kids calls all of us to roll up our sleeves, have some fun, and
make a difference in our communities.
2007, Good Kids was nominated for consideration of a Pulitzer
Prize by Columbia University.
