to empower teens to take action in their own lives and communities.
Young people are strong, intelligent, and talented in unique and powerful ways.
Young people can and do make valuable contributions to their communities and schools.
Young people have the ability to take control of their future.
TASC is a safe and inviting environment where youth, parents, community members and staff work together to provide support and opportunity for teens and their families.
We ENCOURAGE teens to reach their full potential through practical learning experiences.
We EMPOWER teens to take control of their futures through counseling and mentoring.
We CONNECT teens to their communities through resources and service opportunities.
We have a powerful potential in our youth, and we must have the courage to change old ideas and practices so that we may direct their power toward good ends.
