Jerry Revish Talks with Club Teens about Life in 2018

With the explosion of technology, social media and school violence, teens today have an even greater need for resources that will provide them a safe, secure and supported environment where they can thrive.  Jerry Revish from 10TV met with six teens from Boys & Girls Clubs of Columbus to gain a better understanding of the issues teens face in today’s world.  The candid discussion that took place in German Village’s Schiller Park, just steps away from Boys & Girls Clubs of Columbus’ administrative office, revealed that this generation of teens is bold and adventurous, but at times, also fearful.  Teens today are not only facing greater challenges than their parents did at their age, but technology and social media push those challenges front and center, making it difficult to escape.  Despite their fears about the issues they face each day, this group of teens wants to make a difference.  “We do know what’s going on in the world and we do want to make an impact,” says 18-year old, Isatu Barry.  Without a doubt, they already are.
