Teens are practicing politics

Who said politics were just for grown-ups? With American youth taking the reigns of social movements like “Me Too” to “NeverAgain,” Dalton School student James Kuntz has started a group called Teens in Politics, where young people can find political internships through his website, TeensInPolitics.org.

The website gives students a means to work with New York politicians throughout the city.
