Available June 2022. Social-media-savvy kids and teens are moving the needle on difficult social justice issues like gun control, climate change, and LGBTQ rights. No matter how busy they are, young people can make a difference in the world. Simple Acts shows them how, with easy and practical resources and tools that can help teens add intentional acts of kindness and service to their everyday lives.
To make a difference in the world, young people can do simple things to help make the world kinder and gentler. Rather than expecting teens to fix all the world’s problems, Simple Acts equips them with the hands-on tools and know-how they need to make small but meaningful change, such as:
honoring happy occasions by giving back
raising money and awareness for the causes they care about
harnessing the power of social media to spread positive messages
A passionate advocate for family and youth service, Natalie Silverstein, MPH, wrote Simple Acts to inspire a more realistic approach to service for young people, a more organic way to make the world a better place: one simple act at a time.
