Young people speak out on community

Charitable giving is on the rise, with an increase in the number of people doing volunteer work. Notable among the latter are the growing number of teens and young people devoting time and effort to benefit not only their immediate communities but the world. The Sentinel recently asked five such young people about the contribution they are making to humanity. Emily Laclau is the daughter of a diplomat, and has lived in many parts of the world. She's now attending Boston University, taking sociology courses, and studying communities around the world. Matthew D. Neal is a senior at Phillips Exeter Academy, a private high school in Exeter, New Hampshire. Sara Streeter attends the College of Wooster in Ohio. David Cramer has roots in New England and Colorado, and currently resides in Oxford, England. He's the vicepresident of technology partnerships for Hybercar, Inc. Carrie Silver-Stock is a school social worker in St. Louis, Missouri.
