Bucket list summer 2022
program overview

summer experiences for teens

Application opens March 6, 2023

Bucket List Summer is a FREE summer program for teens 13-16 years old to give them the opportunity to have new and fun experiences. This summer program is for teens between the ages of 13-16 years old who are still in school.

Our goal is to build self-esteem and connection to the community while giving real life experiences that teens may not have access to. Every experience is based in experiential learning and intentionally chosen to engage teens intellectually, creatively, mentally, socially, and/or physically. Teens who attend the Bucket List Summer program will gain a deeper understanding of themselves and the community and the critical thinking skills to engage in life’s challenges in a constructive and beneficial way.

Teens enrolled in Bucket List Summer will experience every TASC program during their cohort. From Art Therapy with Restore to working in our community garden with InService to rock wall climbing with Thrive, we want teens to experience all different types of activities and feel embraced and welcomed by TASC staff.

[bucket list summer] gave me access to experiences that I wouldn’t have been able to do on my own. It didn’t show me anything about myself that I didn’t already know but it helped me show parts of myself that I don’t get to show when I’m at home – like professionalism and getting to know people who work in the community.
