Abstract:

Kids everywhere are deciding they can?t wait to become adults to change the world. They?re acting right now to fight hunger and poverty, promote health and human rights, save the environment, and work for peace?in their communities and around the globe. Their stories prove that young people can make a difference. Like Barbara Lewis's groundbreaking The Kid's Guide to Social Action, this book includes real-life stories to inspire young readers, plus a rich and varied menu of opportunities for service, fast facts, hands-on activities, user-friendly tools, and up-to-date resources kids can use to put their own volunteer spirit into practice. It also spotlights young people from the past whose efforts led to significant positive change. Upbeat, practical, and highly motivating, this book has the power to rouse young readers everywhere.
