There has been a bit of a trend happening the last month or so in Game Plan. America’s youth as a topic keeps emerging.

Because of the Obama administration’s Race to the Top Fund being embraced by both parties and that fact being publicized and because films like Precious and Ten9Eight have come onto my radar, an invitation to “Two Legal Minds: A Conversation on America’s Youth” perked up my ears. I had the pleasure of speaking with Karen Mathis, the CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, and Michael A. Corriero, the executive director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of New York City in that forum. The result is Investing in Mentoring Youth.
