Publisher Comments:

Heres a book for every teen who wants to get involved in service and social change. Featuring profiles of real “Difference Makers” and practical tools readers can use to support causes they are passionate about, The Teen Guide to Global Action provides everything youth need to make a difference at the local, national, or global level.

From suggestions for reducing hunger and poverty and protecting human rights to environmental projects and efforts to promote peace, this book provides know-how teens can use to make the world a better place. Theres also a healthy dose of inspiration. Whether its reading about Zach Hunter, who started an organization devoted to ending modern-day slavery, or Janine Licare, who is helping protect Costa Rican rain forests, teens reading these and dozens of other stories will realize they dont have to wait to become an adult to change the world.

Upbeat, practical, and highly motivating, The Teen Guide to Global Action is a go-to source teens can use to put their volunteer spirit into practice and make an impact in their world.

Britney, September 1, 2011 (view all comments by Britney)
I live in florida and I am required to do a senior project to graduate high school. I had to read this book over the summer and I am glad I did. This book helped me pick a topic to do my project on and it gave some great examples of organizations for my topic. I really liked how the book had a bunch of different project ideas and stories of real teens making a difference in it. This book helped so much, and I would recommend it to anyone that needs to do a senior project or any community service project!
