Teen spirit takes off at Power of Youth

Thesps put hands, hearts behind good causes

Young thesps populated Variety’s fifth annual Power of Youth bash Oct. 22.

Hailee Steinfeld spent the better part of three hours manning the Share Our Strength booth at Paramount. No less passionate about their causes were Angus T. Jones (St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital), Bailee Madison (Alex’s Lemonade Stand), Hayden Panettiere (Whaleman Foundation), Chloe Moretz (Film Foundation) and Rico Rodriguez (Camp Ronald McDonald).

Acknowledging the positive contributions of his fellow honorees, Trevor Project champ Darren Criss took the opportunity “to dismantle a saying that I’ve always resented, that youth is truly not wasted on the young.”
