Despite graduating in the top 10% of his high school class, Dr. Green earned a D in the first semester of his college career – almost leading him to drop out. His experience motivated him to develop academic skills that ultimately led to successfully earning a doctorate degree and developed his passion for mentoring students.
Green integrates leadership skills, soft skills, and academic success skills to empower students to succeed in the classroom and on the job. He also serves as a student leadership and success expert for parents and teachers. Green provides tailored presentations to schools and other organizations.
Green founded CaryJGreen.com and is the author of “Success Skills for High School, College, and Career.” This book has appeared on Amazon Best-Seller lists in College & University Student Life and Study Skills.
Prior to starting his own business, Dr. Green spent twenty years teaching, advising, mentoring, and supervising university students. He spent ten years in leadership positions in higher education where he served as director of a college-level recruiting and career center, department chair, and associate dean for academic programs. He taught leadership and academic success classes and received numerous teaching and mentoring awards. He also mentored student leadership development organizations and was influential in the development of a college-level student leadership academy.
Green recently was recognized as a Global Presence Ambassador by Parenting 2.0 for his commitment to developing success skills in young people. Green serves on the Leo Club Program Advisory Panel. The Leo Club is an international service and leadership development program for youth with more than 6,500 clubs in over 140 countries.
