My name is Mercy Thompson. I live in Nashville, TN. I personally, have been working in youth groups for the past year, since June 2011. Being apart of a youth group makes me feel like I belong and that I do have a say so in what goes on in my community. Before I started working with a youth group, I felt like teenagers can't have a voice or do anything but now I see that we always have a say in what goes on.
