This guidebook is designed to be a hands-on, interactive tool. You will read the examples of young people from across North America who are solving serious problems in their communities TODAY. There are descriptions of activities you can do with your friends to help inspire them to do something. Included are action planning forms to help guide you in your effort to change our world. At the end of the Firestarter Handbook you’ll find a list of resources that can inspire and educate everyone on how to help our world, including organizations and websites that YOUth and adults can use.
Young people have an incredible energy and vitality that can be embraced to promote social change. By promoting young peoples’ self-awareness and capacity for leadership, communities can encourage Youth Voice and involvement in decision making and problem solving activities.
