Do you want to support teens in developing their leadership skills? Starting a Teen Advisory Council (TAC) is a great way to accomplish that goal! 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 this captivating four-part series, you will learn how to create, run, and sustain a fun and effective TAC that will strengthen your program, give youth a meaningful voice, and provide additional benefits for both teens and adults.
