To be prepared means to be ready beforehand for a general or specific future event or occasion (American Heritage Dictionary). In the context of the Brilliant Star model, this means to acquire the vision, competencies, and moral character to be successful as an adult. At this point in time that means to be prepared to live in a world culture that is being transformed from an agricultural/industrial economic base to one in which the majority of economic enterprise involves the selection, processing, and use of information (i.e., the information age). The lessons in this section relate to those requirements.
