Do you wanttotruly engageyour teensand help build their leadership skills? Starting a Teen Advisory Council (or TAC) is a great way to do both! TAC involvement allows teens to become your partners in designing, planning, and implementing programs and often leads to stronger youth engagement and higher program participation and attendance.  


In thiscaptivating three-part hands-on training, you will first learn how to create, run, and sustain a fun and effective TAC that will strengthen your community and provide several benefits for both teens and adults.  


Then, you will be introduced to a strong SEL-based framework and routines that can help your TAC members build valuable communication and social-emotional learning skills while cultivating positive, meaningful relationships with their peers and with adults. The end result will be more focused, connected, fun, and effective council meetings!
