TAMPA - Ricky Roberts, III, a author and proclaimed "youth advocate," is hoping to inspire young men and women through his charity, You are Valued.
Roberts recently authored a book that aims to motive young people he encounters at group homes, detention centers, foster car, and shelters.
He focuses on kids in their middle school and high school years.
Through his book, he hopes to give hope to young adults to achieve more in life. He plans to pass out thousands of books, but in order to do so he needs donations to keep the books in print, thus is Give One, Get One campaign. By giving the funds for one book a youth is able to receive one.
