Assets In Action: Youth out in full force in LA

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

This week, we look at Asset number 8, Youth as Resources. This is when youth are given a useful role in the community.
As always, I like to start with the data, so in 2009, our sixth through 12th grade students reported that 31 percent of them had this Asset in their lives. The 2013 data reports 35 percent.
This weekend a variety of youth played a very useful role in the community and the life of a recently injured soldier.
The 5K run to benefit Micah Anderson, many community youth took to the streets to make a difference for one of our heroes, right from the heart of the community.
Now I didn’t see everyone, but the cross country team and the wrestling team were out in full force, their coaches could be seen hitting the road. too.
Wrestler Mateo Cardiel called cadence, while the team ran in modified formation, carrying the colors the whole way.
The cub scouts from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints presented the colors and we were off to the races.
