Sample Answer:
If there were a club cum library with internet facility in my hometown where teenagers could go after school, it would be more appealing to people my age. We would make it as a hub of teenagers. We could run several activities that not only help us to improve our interpersonal skills, but it could serve our neighborhood as well.

In my town, there are clubs but are restricted for teenagers. So, after school, we have nothing to do but spending hours on the TV or computer screen. This makes us homesick day by day. Actually, we need a place where we can meet people our age to talk about topics that interest us. Where we can share various information and exchange our views. This will reduce distances among us and will help us to come out from pigeonhole. Let me elaborate it a bit more. When can meet boys from different backgrounds, we can understand different ways of thinking, and be acquainted with different culture and tradition. Consequently, our stereotypes about others will no longer exist, I think.

From our club, we would run various programs that improve ourselves on the one hand, and on the other hand, help our neighborhood. We would arrange a book reading competition annually among the members of library. We would have a debating society, a musical band, a film society. I am sure these activities will improve our skills and broaden our horizon of knowledge. Besides that, we would run several voluntary programs such as, tree plantation, cleaning the neighborhood, and awareness programs for green house effect, and so on. Definitely, these all will make us a true citizen of the society.

In conclusion, no one can ignore the importance of what has been discussed above. The thrust of my argument is that teenagers like all age groups need a place to pass time on their own far away from their hectic life.
