Editorial Reviews

Review

Savitz-Romer and Bouffard have written a much-needed book that captures and highlights the intersections of adolescent development, community-building, and college readiness. This book should be read by all educators, particularly school counselors and K-12 school-based college counselors, interested in helping youth reach their academic potential. Well done! --Cheryl Holcomb-Mccoy, professor and vice dean of academic affairs, School of Education, Johns Hopkins University

Format: Paperback
This book lays a path for a profound shift in the way that practitioners support the young people we work with. Using clear and accessible ideas and language, incorporating theory, practice, and personal experiences, the authors frame college access and success as a process that should be guided by an intentional and reflective focus on the various facets of adolescent development. The chapters on identity development are especially informative. I highly recommend 'Ready, Willing, and Able' to anyone working with young people - in schools, after-school programs, community agencies, etc.

This book is phenomenal. It marries theory to practice and provides real world examples that bind the two together. Anyone working in college counseling, college access/persistence programming or working with at-risk/first-generation/underrepresented populations should use this book as a guide to facilitating successful postsecondary educational opportunites for their students. Their advice works for different contexts: school, community programming, individuals and groups. Simply phenomenal.

Format: Paperback
This book is a great look at the parts of college access and college staying that many programs haven't thought about. It's a fresh take and perspective of all the parts of adolescents and students that comprise a college bound identity.

A great insightful and helpful read!!!!!
