Online Submission, Paper presented at the Emerging Leaders Symposium (Morehoead State University, Feb 20, 2009)
How aware of societal issues are our young people who will soon be entering the workforce and communities as life-long residents? To what extent do young adults view local and state issues, in particular, as potential barriers to social progress and reform? In what way/s can young adults become and stay abreast of critical issues and initiate discussion with stakeholders and policy makers? This paper will address these questions by drawing upon recent research and trends regarding young adults' exposure to social issues and the news, and will challenge them to take responsibility for the communities they will inherit.
