Check the list out here and share it in your class or at your dinner table, and get your teens inspired and involved!

Some of these brave teens, like the ever-inspiring Malala, have been on TeenBeing or in Choices before. But while we're at it, we've got a few names to add to the list:

15-year-old Dylan, featured in our October 2013 issue, is the founder of ReefQuest, an organization dedicated to saving the world's coral reefs.

Orren, a 16-year-old we featured in our April 2013 issue, was invited to the White House because of his blog. Healthy Chickens Lay Healthy Eggs, about raising his 32 chickens, 4 ducks, and 250,000 bees.
