The problem that our group is working on is bringing a movie theater back to Naugatuck. This is a big problem because many people, especially kids, have nothing to do in Naugatuck. This would increase safety for kids and parents so they wouldn't need to go to the mall at night. This would help bring our hometown back into business and better it for the current and potential citizens of Naugatuck. We would try getting a petition or talk to the mayor about how this would work.

The issue is inconvenient timing and high cost for students to go to driver's education. We chose this issue because some of the other schools in the state offer an in school driver's education course, and it is important to us. Our goal is to be able to start a in school driver's ed class during normal school hours for teens trying to get their licenses. Our next step will be to research the costs for starting the class so when we go to present the idea to Mrs. Saam, we have a general idea on how much it will cost to bring the program back to our school.

We are working on crime and criminals/felons, hoping for the best and to help them. The problem and its effects on people is that a lot of crime that goes on effects teens or peers. When mutual classmates or even older people get into trouble,it reflects on us and we are the future! In order to help these people, we are trying to rehibilitate them by keeping them involved in the community. Activities like basketball at the YMCA, weight lifting, swimming, tutoring progams to get them back on track.

We feel as if Naugatuck, Connecticut has nothing to do. Such as a movie theater, a roller rink, or anything that would give people of all ages something to do. This bothers us and we would like to fix it. This bothers us because everyone is bored of Naugatuck and we have no real attractions besides the duck race to bring in people from other towns. If we had a movie theater, a roller rink, or arcade Naugatuck would get more business and money. Our goal is to get some type of entertainment in Naugatuck. However, we need help so our first step is to get people to sign a petition for our cause.

Sidewalks are a big issue in our town and around us. We chose our issue because Aaliyah's brother Avary got hit by a car while riding a bike. Our goal is to try to make our town to understand that sidewalks are necessary for our safety. Our next step is to write a letter to the mayor so he could understand how dangerous it is.

Our issue: High schoolers should have 'recess' or a period in school for excercise or physical activity. Obesity is becoming widespread in America, and people are supposed to get one hour of excercise every day. At home, teenagers have the opportunity to play video games, go on the internet, etc. If we had a period in school when only physical activity was availabe, more kids would be motivated to get active. Our goal is to let recess commence! Recess in high school should be available not just in Naugatuck High, but across the nation.

A few weeks ago, we went to our local elementary school to talk to the students about staying healthy and exercising. We wanted this activity to be a fun experience for the children, so we had stickers and prizes for the kids to win if they participated in the activities, which included a relay race and a stretching circuit. We also had snacks, granola bars and oranges, to hand out after the kids had exercised so that they could see in person what kind of healthy foods they can eat while it still tasting good.

We found that we were successful in our goal in showing the kids that exercising can be fun and that there are healthy foods that do taste good. The children had a great time, they loved the stickers, more so than everything else, and though I don't know if everything we said stuck, they at least had a great time.

This is a great and popular issue thats going on. I agree that teens try to find a way to obtain alcohol. Everyone well, Most teens/people are accoustomed to partying and drinking which makes them irresponsible if they drink and drive.
