our mission

to empower teens to take action in their own lives and communities.

we believe

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.


our vision

TASC is the leading teen-focused organization in Northwest Arkansas that empowers teens and their families through relevant and innovative programs and services led by compassionate and exceptional staff while shifting the narrative around adolescents.

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.
