This hands-on guide speaks directly to student leaders seeking to improve the effectiveness of their engaged work while enhancing their academic and civic learning. Based on three years of activity in Campus Compact's hugely successful Raise Your Voice civic action campaign, which mobilized hundreds of thousands of students across the country, this book is full of targeted strategies, tools, and activities for organizing change on campus. From holding civic dialogues to meeting with elected officials, from mapping assets and allies on campus to organizing alternative breaks, this book offers tips and step-by-step advice — from students, for students — for getting the most out of campus activity.
