Teens Respond to National Survey

APRIL 27, 2006 -- Teenagers in our area and across the country have come together to find out what their peers need. Through the Boys and Girls Club of America, kids ages 13 to 18 have responded to the largest national survey just for teens, given by teens.

The survey addressed topics such as violence, education and peer pressure. Many teens said they want a good education but aren't always given a chance. They also said they want less violence in the world. Some other highlights from the survey: teens' parents influence them more than their peers and personal happiness is more important than having a good job or owning a home.
