Why read it?

1 author picked Youth to Power as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

Ignore the word “youth” in the title, because this is not just a book for kids and teens!

This book is an excellent guide to getting involved and staying involved anywhere from the local level up to a global scale. This is a must-read for people who are fired up to take action but don’t know where to start.

From Tanja's list on to equip you to fight for change.
