You know the "forgotten middle": they're the students, coworkers and regular people who are often overlooked because they're seen as neither exceptional nor problematic. How can we empower them to reach their full potential? Sharing her work helping young people get to and through college, social activist Danielle R. Moss challenges us to think deeper about who deserves help and attention — and shows us how to encourage those in the middle to dream big.

Past generations found a company to work for and then stayed there for decades. But today, we rarely stay in the same job (let alone on the same career path) and we don't rely on a single income stream. The tools and resources are out there for us to do our own thing, and more of us are going with the entrepreneurial spirit — even if it's on the side of a traditional job. Podcaster and marketer Nicaila Matthews Okome helps survey the scene.

"What's the point of learning facts in the school system," she asks, "when the finest science from that system means nothing to our politicians and society?" In this passionate call to action, Thunberg explains why, in August 2018,...
