Parents, teachers, and President Obama like to remind children of their ability to “change the world”. Kids are definitely capable of leaving their mark on the world – for good or bad. Young people are on a quest to understand the world and their place in it. On that journey, ambition and passion are powerful forces, but without meaning or a sense of purpose their efforts can be severely misguided. Passion feeds ambition, but it’s that sense of purpose that guides young people to make a positive impact on their world.
