How can we give back and best serve persons with developmental disabilities? Student John Fahrenbach explores the options and searches for the "gold standard" community.

John is a senior honors student at Lake Forest High School. He has spent many hours of his time working with developmentally disabled residents at Misericordia Home in Chicago. Last fall, he organized "Miles for Misericordia," a one day, 100-mile bike ride that raised over $25,000 for the charity. John is a three-time recipient of the President's Volunteer Service Award for his commitment to Misericordia and several other community organizations.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
