Hart and Youniss synthesize a broad interdisciplinary literature, arguing that expanding opportunities for youth participation can renew our democracy. Their proposals are creative, practical, and built on evidence: Renew civic life through environmental engagement and lower the voting age to increase participation.

This exemplary work is essential reading for experts, leaders in government and the nonprofit sector, and active citizens. * Peter Levine, Associate Dean, Tisch College of Civic Life, Tufts University *
