Young people do have the ability to initiate a positive change in their community. Depending where they live they could always give back by completing some type of community service. Some examples are setting up a beach or park clean-up, volunteering at a soup kitchen or organizing a fundraiser or a food drive for the local homeless shelter.
Yes, young people have that ability. However, many of them do not use their ability wisely, and instead of contributing to their community, they only take. hope this helps
