Full Description

The powerful, personal story of Jim Ziolkowski, the man behind the organization buildOn--which turns inner city teens into community leaders at home and abroad--and his inspiring mission to change the world one community at a time. THE STORY OF REAL CHANGE CAN START WITH JUST ONE PERSON Twenty-one years ago, Jim Ziolkowski gave up a fast-track career in corporate finance to dedicate his life to buildOn, an organization that turns inner-city teens into community leaders at home and abroad. He set out to show not that he could change the world, but how each one of us can, through the power of service to others. Today, buildOn students have contributed more than 1.2 million hours of service, from Detroit and the South Bronx to Haiti, Mali, and Nepal, while building more than five hundred fifty schools worldwide. Together, they are breaking the cycle of poverty, illiteracy, and low expectations in their own lives and transforming their communities. An international chronicle of faith and the boundless potential of the human spirit, Walk in Their Shoes tells the story of Jim's movement and the thousands of young people who have decided to step forward, step up, and make a difference.
