Rescuing civics through volunteering

My last column detailed and bemoaned the planned demise of basic citizenship education. The removal of civics as a requirement for our national definition of basic schooling and education does not bode well for any substantial hope for an informed voter.
In concluding my last column, I tried to sound a cautionary alarm, but the alarm was not accompanied by any suggestions for redress. This has bothered me tremendously. The challenge then becomes what can be done to start a reversal of this downward spiral, this lack of understanding of the basic tenets of citizenship?
