Reviews

Many young people are making an important difference through community service. We should recognize their outstanding contributions and challenge others to give back by volunteering in their communities. This book explains how. -- Tom Block, former president, Youth Service Alliance of Greater Kansas City Ron Poplau has done more than theorize about the benefits of community service, he has truly lived the experience. We can all benefit from his wisdom on the topic. -- Mindy Thompkins, former Kansas Commissioner of Education The profound value of this program is that EVERYONE benefits! Ron Poplau has developed a concept that changes the lives of students who participate as well as the people they serve. If every school would adopt this program the world would be a much kinder, safer place. -- SuEllen Fried, ADTR, co-author, Bullies, Targets & Witnesses, Helping Children Break the Pain Chain A well-rounded education includes developing a sense of civic responsibility in the students for whom we are responsible. A community service program as described in this book is an effective approach to achieving this goal. -- Marjorie Kaplan, former superintendent, Shawnee Mission Unified School District, Kansas The community service program developed by Ron Poplau, if emulated by juvenile justice systems, would reduce juvenile offender recidivism. -- Judge John O. Sanderson, retired Kansas Trial Judge The National Teachers Hall of Fame proudly endorses this book and recognizes the many years Ron Poplau has devoted to engaging students in community service! The NTHF encourages all teachers to actively involve students in community service activities. -- Tes Mehring, former president, Teachers Hall of Fame Think about a program for typical high school students -one that has received positive recognition at the local, state, and national level. One that has had the governor of the state come to the school for the sole purpose of recognizing this unique program. U.S. Congressmen have visited the school just to meet with these classes. -- Bill Harrington, former principal, Shawnee Mission Northwest High School As author of House Bill 2304 making community service mandatory in Kansas high schools, I am honored to be the author of such a powerful tool to build self-esteem and patriotism in every community across the state. This book will offer all who read it an inspiration not felt before. -- Lisa Benlon, retired Kansas State Representative As the former mayor of Shawnee, Kansas, I have seen many instances of what Poplau's program did for the citizens of this community. This great program helped both the community and the students. What a wonderful way to teach our young adults. -- Jim Allen, former Mayor of Shawnee, Kansas
