A month before Jane Lynch hosts the Emmys, the actress takes to the stage hosting the "2011 Do Something Awards" on VH1 for the second time.
Younger people taking the incentive impress her, Lynch tells Zap2it.
"It's a mixed blessing of being young and naive and they do and they sacrifice themselves and it's great to give the winner a spotlight," she says.
The awards honor those under 25 who achieve change for the better, and one honoree receives $100,000 for his cause.
Earlier this year, teen sensation Demi Lovato quit her popular Disney program "Sonny With a Chance" after she emerged from a three-month stint at a rehab facility, where she was being treated for bulimia and self-injury.
The young star, who turns 19 on Saturday, said she was leaving the show to focus on her music career because "being in front of a camera would make me nervous."

I'm not a big fan of adults, and I'm frankly beginning to doubt their ability to make our world a better place. Take Congress -- please. On the other hand, I've been heartened in recent weeks by working on The 2011 VH1 Do Something! Awards -- which airs tonight at 9PM. The show -- hosted by the amazing and consistently hilarious Jane Lynch -- puts the spotlight on young people making a difference by "rocking the causes" that matter the most to them, as well as celebrating lots of more familiar celebrities who use their star power for the common good.
