A few years ago, Brad Montague and his wife founded GO! Camp to champion kids who want to make the world a better place. GO! Camp works to "inspire and empower young people into meaningful service and stewardship in their communities."

Montague began making videos with his 10-year-old brother-in-law Robby Novak playing Kid President, a smart, funny, sharp-dressed lad who shares GO! Camp's positive message and gives young people a voice. The videos are engaging but are made all the more compelling because Novak suffers from Osteogenesis Imperfecta, "a brittle bone disease, which has resulted in him having over 70 breaks since birth. What's inspiring about Robby isn't his condition, but the fact that his condition doesn't define who he is. In spite of all he's been through he not only keeps going—he dances," Montague writes on his website, kidpresident.com.

The videos, available on the Soul Pancake YouTube channel, show Kid President—who often gets famous people to give him a hand—setting a good example in his ongoing "quest for awesomeness." Now, young people can start their own quest with the help of a new book, Kid President's Guide to Being Awesome by Montague and Novak, the trailer for which shows that Kid President is well on his way to his awesomeness goal.
