Celebrating One Year and One Million!
It's official. In just one year, the SUCCESS Foundation has distributed one million SUCCESS for Teens books and audio CDs to young people through our partnerships with schools and churches; and our alliances with youth-focused organizations such as Big Brothers Big Sisters; America's Promise Alliance; NFTE; Just Say Yes; Boys and Girls Clubs; Optimists International and others. And, of course, our friends, family and client partners, too!
We thank them all for their commitment to youth and belief in SUCCESS for Teens.
Welcome to Dalton Sherman!
Dalton with his mother, Donna Sherman, and John Fleming,
Executive Director of the SUCCESS Foundation
The perfect way to commemorate the first year of SUCCESS Foundation work is with the announcement of our first youth spokesperson, Dalton Sherman!
This gifted 11-year-old captured our hearts and imagination a year ago when he delivered his "Do You Believe in Me" speech to 17,000 educators in Dallas, Texas. His parents have asked and we have agreed that Dalton become a part of the SUCCESS Foundation initiative as our youth spokesperson, sharing his personal message of inspiration and mirroring the personal development principles described in SUCCESS for Teens

Call to Action!
Everyday, somewhere, there is a teen searching for someone who cares, a message of hope, and opportunity to gain re-enforcement in the belief that he can achieve; that he should be able to live a life of purpose and contribution. You can help us ensure that teens receive this simple but purposeful book, containing messages of hope-messages which guide decision-making and choices-messages with the potential to be life-changing.
