"When we started the series in 1991, I talked with hundreds of teens to find out what they were concerned about.
A great many of them were angry that the media only portrays them as troublemakers.
They felt they were getting a bad rap-which they were. So we decided to focus on teens who are making positive choices in their personal lives
and making important contributions to their schools and communities. Not only does this approach
encourage young people to do the same, but it also changes the perceptions of adult viewers...
who will hopefully find that instead of a problem, today's young people are a wonderful
resource for today and a bright hope for tomorrow."
