Walk in Their Shoes is a powerful, inside look at the buildOn movement. It’s the inspiring personal story of Jim Ziolkowski’s mission to change the world one community at a time by building schools in developing countries and empowering inner-city youth through community-service programs in the U.S.

As an international chronicle of faith and the boundless potential of the human spirit, Walk in Their Shoes tells the story of Jim’s movement and the young people who have decided to step forward, step up, and make a difference.
