Why is it important for young people to be involved with their community?
Asked at Checkers, 2300 La. on February 11, 2007
“I think it gives them a sense of responsibility, a sense of belonging and helps them feel involved in the process of building the community.”
“I think it’s important for them to understand the community around them. If they have a strong sense of community, they know that there are people out there they can depend on.”
“Unless they learn to change things themselves, nothing they want to change in their community will ever get done.”
“I think it can be beneficial and rewarding for them as well as the community they live in.”
