Description of Activity

Youth discuss scenarios involving ethical dilemmas.

Seek a volunteer to read one of the two scenarios. Open the floor to reactions and answers. Ask participants if this reminds them of other dilemmas encountered or that they have heard of, real or fictional. How could responsibility play a part in this dilemma? What are some of the reason people act in ways that seem irresponsible?
