Teen Advisory Council©
"I have learned many leadership skills through TAC and gained confidence when meeting others and presenting in front of large groups. Being active through service and volunteer work in the community has also helped me develop great time management skills!"
Since 1987, the Youth Resources Teen Advisory Council has engaged high school students who are passionate about leadership, community service, and civic engagement while allowing youth leaders to gain a sense of ownership and responsibility. The program, which began with 12 students, now has over 120 members and has involved over 1,650 teens in leadership development! In the 2011-12 school year, these students completed over 4,200 hours of community service through 135 local non-profit agencies and events.
These dedicated high school students:
Represent every high school in Evansville and Castle in Newburgh
Meet twice a month during the school year on Fridays at 5:55 a.m.
Serve the community
Develop leadership skills
Serve on one of seven TAC committees
Create a network of diverse peers and adults from Vanderburgh, Posey & Warrick Counties
Shadow leaders in city and county government and EVSC school board
Plan service and fundraising events
Serving on the Teen Advisory Council prepares youth for the challenges they will face in the future as college students, employees, employers and volunteers while encouraging them to be a positive force in our community today.
