"Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans." – JFK. Can JFK's ideals of citizenship and the "call to service" reach today's students? How can the speeches, legislation and actions of the Kennedy generation be used to foster citizenship and service in today's students?

"Let us not be blind to our differences but let us also direct attention to our common interests and to the means by which those differences can be resolved" - JFK Extensive resources provided.
