Step Forward’s Leadership Council was formally introduced to the new Teen Advisory Committee during their meeting on February 26th, 2019. TAC president, Bhavani Tivakaran spoke to the group about issues on which the Teen Advisory Committee will focus.

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.

Susannah Walter Poljak, Judge David Matlock, Cheradee Williams, Halena Jones, and Laura Alderman also spoke to the group about ongoing projects including NWLA Thrive, and the NWLA Early Childhood Policy Summit.
