FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

New book proposes a national service program to bring young people of all backgrounds together, make them better citizens and help restore America’s glory.

Outskirts Press Announces the Release of Step Forward America! A Case for a National Service Program - Second Edition by Ted Hollander

July 15, 2017 – Denver, CO and New York City, NY – Ted Hollander has a vision—one that would educate and enlighten our youth so that through our democratic process they can all better serve the country, fix our broken institutions, and lead us to a more fulfilling world role. With the release of the second edition of his highly acclaimed book, Step Forward America! A Case for a National Service Program, Hollander describes this vision and the practical, feasible steps every citizen can take to bring it to fruition.

It’s no secret: America’s sense of common purpose and civility has deteriorated. The country cries out for a resurgence of one unified vision—of citizens pulling together to build a better and stronger America. In Step Forward America! author Ted Hollander makes a compelling case for a national service program, designed to motivate and educate America’s youth to become engaged citizens of the nation and of the world.

With clear reasoning, supported by nationally recognized political journalists and government and military officials, the book makes a case for the vast benefits of a national service program that includes both military and civilian options. Hollander outlines the logistics, recommended protocols and the program’s educational element, which incorporates life preparation courses in civics, personal money matters, media literacy and lessons in international understanding.

Under this program, young people from all social and economic backgrounds would live and work together for two years, fostering a generation that is more tolerant of other opinions and more willing to compromise. The transfer of this culture to our elected officials would help facilitate an escape from the current quagmire of partisan politics and move this great nation toward a healthy future.

Everyone agrees that America is in crisis, and that urgent action is needed if America is to maintain her status as the role model for the free world. Mr. Hollander joins the many public figures currently promoting national service by publishing the second edition of this book and spreading the word to elected officials and other influencers in government, academia and the military.
