GPP to expand Teen Advisory Council (TAC) programs to 6 NEW schools


As part of the Georgia Prevention Project’s mission of spreading peer-based knowledge of substance use prevention, specifically with prescription drug misuse and abuse prevention in youth, we have decided to expand our TAC program to 6 additional schools!

The TAC program is made up of groups comprised of middle and high school-aged students that implement the program in schools and community organizations around the state of Georgia. The groups are led by student leaders at their prospective schools who focus and bring awareness to substance use and prescription drug misuse/abuse prevention to their peers.

These groups participate in engaging activities to show that there are other ways to enjoy their time rather than using drugs. Previous TAC schools have done things such as hosting parent nights, creating youth-led Teen Reality Parties, and facilitating the teen portion of Community Drug Summits. Due to the success of the TAC program, implementing more TAC groups will help create more drug-free environments within schools, and communities in the state of Georgia.

Hurry! Spaces are limited for the 2018-2019 TAC program and will fill up quickly! If interested in applying, please email: TAC@georgiapreventionproject.org for more details!
