24545, inspiring the youth to action|

i think that all (or at least most) of us who post on okayactivist are interested in creating positive social change, but there are many young people out there who either talk a good game about revolution, but do next to nothing to back up their words, or else they really don't even care and are content to maintain the status quo--which includes the increased number of prisons being build, the decreased spending and action on educational programs etc. etc. etc. There is a sense of apathy and lethargy in our generation that is unlike any of the past(i know we can't do things the way that our parents, aunts and uncles did in the 60s, but that doesn't mean that we can't make revolutionary change).
So my questions to all the okayactivists out there is:
HOW DO WE INSPIRE THESE YOUTH TO ACT?!!!
HOW DO WE INCREASE THE NUMBERS IN OUR RANKS OF TRUE REVOLUTIONARIES?!!!
