Stephanie Malia Krauss is an educator, social worker, and coach.
Eight years ago, she left her work in schools because she knew that helping students earn a high school diploma was not the same as getting them ready for adulthood. Since then, she has been on a mission to figure out what kids really need to survive and thrive in our changing world.
Stephanie is the author of Making It: What Today’s Kids Need for Tomorrow’s World, the owner of First Quarter Strategies, a senior advisor to Jobs for the Future, a senior fellow with Education Northwest, and a consultant for the Youth Transition Funders Group. She writes regularly for Youth Today and Scary Mommy.
