An excellent starting point for an activity outside the class as part of a volunteer effort. Students can be asked to find their own community group that they would like to work with for a day. After their volunteer day is complete, each student can then report to the class on their experience. This will make for a good awareness-raising exercise, but also a concrete introduction to the concept of civic responsibility.
