About the Author:

Kathlyn Gay is a full-time freelance writer and has authored more than 120 books and articles.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 8 Up–This action guide is arranged by the specific areas in which young people can become involved in their communities and make a difference. Suggestions include building and repairing houses through agencies like Habitat for Humanity; working with senior citizens; helping out in hospitals and hospice care; working with organizations that feed the hungry and help the homeless; becoming active in environmental preservation efforts; working in museums to help preserve the past; camp counseling, teaching, or tutoring young children; contributing to anti-discrimination efforts; and working for political campaigns. The text is peppered with real-life stories and quotes from students across the country involved in different projects. Black-and-white photographs of teens "on the job" and personal essays about their experiences add interest. Boxed information, additional resources, tips, etc., break up the text. A list of selected organizations and Web sites provides a starting point to becoming active. While the text is somewhat dry, and the interior design of the book does not invite browsing (the combination of text and black-and-white photos is somewhat monotonous), this is a useful tool in that it provides a one-stop resource for teens interested in locating volunteer opportunities.–Jennifer Ralston, Harford County Public Library, Belcamp, MD
