Thrive Clermont’s Teen Advisory Council

We are seeking motivated teenagers from the Lake County area to serve on our Teen Advisory Council (TAC). The TAC will advise and assist in critical planning and implementation elements of Thrive Clermont's Programs and Events for Teens.

The Teen Advisory Council meets monthly thanks to the support of UCF and Lake-Sumter State College, who have graciously donated classroom space for us to use at their Clermont Campus

The 2019 TAC had over two dozen members, and focused on a variety of projects, including:

Teen Volunteer PlugIns: The TAC was very involved in the TVP program last year. TAC members established partners and ensured that volunteer opportunities for program participants were fun and educational. 

Fundraising: The TAC worked to find ways to help fund programming for teens in Clermont, and organizinged spirit nights as well as a fall fundraising event to support the addition of mentoring and life skills programs. 

Teen Survey: The newest initiative that Thrive Clermont's TAC began in 2019 was the creation of a teen survey. The goal of the survey is to collect data from over1000 young people in our community to help discover trends that will allow us to design programming to better meet the needs of teens in our area.
