Simple Acts equips tweens and teens with the hands-on tools and know-how they need to make small but meaningful change, such as:

  • honoring happy occasions by giving back
  • raising money and awareness for the causes they care about
  • harnessing the power of social media to spread positive messages

A passionate advocate for family and youth service, Natalie Silverstein, MPH, wrote Simple Acts to inspire a more realistic approach to service for young people, a more organic way to make the world a better place: one simple act at a time.
