Boys & Girls Clubs of America has conducted a survey entitled "Teens Speak Up: A National Youth Survey on Civic Engagement and Citizenship." The survey was conducted by teens in their own communities, with about 10,000 respondents. The results clearly demonstrate the strong voice of America's youth, with survey highlights including:
--80% of teens agree that US citizens have a duty to vote, and that every vote can make a difference
--85% agree that school is important and will help them achieve their career goals
--More than half of teens polled believe that it is important to serve as community leaders, and to address social issues
