As National Youth of the Year, I’m an advocate for young people. I believe we have the power to make a difference in the world. However, sometimes I wonder if our leaders are concerned about what matters to us! I care about access to education, empowerment and self-esteem.

What are you concerned about? Help get America talking about youth issues by letting your voice be heard. Even though the President's State of the Union address is over, it's never too late to share your views on the State of the Youth. Use #SOTY and let our voices be heard!!

Last year, Boys & Girls Clubs of America conducted a national survey of more than 1,000 young people. We wanted to find out the issues that concern them most as they stand on the brink of adulthood. Their answers were sobering.

An alarming 90 percent told us they don’t believe our country’s leaders listen to them. They were especially concerned that they have no important role to play in their future. To determine if those opinions changed, BGCA commissioned a follow-up survey. But one year later, America’s youth still believes they are unheard by their leaders. What now?
