So many societal ills are swirling and teens don’t know how to deal or where to turn.
Which is why a Buckingham Charter Magnet High School senior created a safe place to land — her Social Awareness Club at the school.
“I was looking around my school and there were all these clubs, but nothing about what’s happening in the world, in the media, about how women are being treated or how men are being treated,” the 17-year-old said. “The point of my club is to talk about issues.”
Now 20-people strong, a diverse group of 10 young men and 10 young women, the group gets together to talk about all manner of issues facing them in the world today and to fully discuss their feelings in a safe, non-judgmental environment.
