To set up a discussion among an invited group of participants, first establish a user name and log-in to the Teen Thoughts on Democracy website. Just click on ACCOUNT at the top right of this page to set up your account. Then complete and submit a Request to Create a Community Group to establish the group. Once approved, you are responsible for inviting your group's participants and monitoring its activities.
