Teaching Adolescents have a fundamental need to contribute

Adolescents have a fundamental need to contribute

Adolescence is the time between being a child and an adult. This is a very important period in young people’s lives. Adolescents must have opportunities to learn and prepare for living in the wider world.\n\nHowever, with young people staying in school for longer and teens being viewed as selfish and irresponsible, have we as a society forgotten how important it is for adolescents to contribute to society?
