The TAC is designed to empower its members to gain leadership skills related to advocating the importance of school-based health care, educating their parents, peers and the community on health promotion topics and serve as role models to their peers.
At TAC we discuss sexual health – STI/HIV prevention & pregnancy prevention, nutrition/diet/exercise, healthy relationships, bully-prevention, drug/alcohol prevention, cultural competency, advocacy skills, leadership skills, facilitation skills, and MUCH MORE!
Some of the events we have taken part of is the the Breast Cancer Walk, World AIDS Day, Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month, “I’m Healthy and I KNOW it!” Nutrition Campaign, GYT (Get Yourself Tested), The National Day to Prevent Teen Pregnancy, SBHC Advocacy Day, Project Voice: A Dynamic Approach to Youth Empowerment and more.
“The TAC is a GREAT opportunity for students to take ownership of their health, and the health of their peers! Not only is this something that looks good on a college application, but you will learn A LOT that will hopefully stay with you for the rest of your life! We would love to have you join our team!”
