Contrary to what you might gather from shows like MTV's 16 and Pregnant, young people have a lot to offer their community. We see evidence of that every week as we get into local schools. We see students starting clubs to help others. We see things like Farmington High School's Youth Development group, which on Monday presented a check to the Farmington Food Shelf. The group raised the money with its annual Games for Change, an overnight lock-in at which teams of high school students -- and a few teacher and community groups -- compete in games like volleyball and floor hockey.
