JOIN THE TEEN ADVISORY COMMITTEE
THE TEEN ADVISORY COMMITTEE (TAC) is a youth advisory board to the Leadership Council at Step Forward. Members meet regularly to discuss policy planning and programming in the community concerning local teens. Membership provides a valuable opportunity for teens to participate in the democratic process, interact with City leaders and impact important decisions.
We all have a huge stake in the healthy development of every child.
