TEEN ADVISORY BOARD 


The Family Resource Center invites Kershaw  and Lee County teens in the 9th through 12th grade to apply for a volunteer position on the Teen Advisory Board (TAB).


The Teen Advisory Board (TAB) is a volunteer board of The Family Resource Center. TAB members will provide volunteer support; participate in activity planning and promotion, promote teen empowerment, and assist with teen pregnancy prevention programming. This board will help TFRC to meet the needs and interests of the teen population within Kershaw and Lee County communities while working to end teen pregnancy and promote teen health.


Under close supervision, volunteers in the Teen Advisory Board will offer suggestions and provide valuable input about teen interests, issues, and activities / program planning. This will make the teen pregnancy prevention programs of TFRC more “teen-friendly.”


There are many benefits to being a part of the Teen Advisory Board, some of which include: meeting and interacting with other teens, developing leadership and team working skills, feeling a sense of accomplishment by serving the community, and obtaining recognition to use on high school and college applications. In addition, volunteer TAB participants work hours may be applied towards the high school community service requirement. This is a volunteer position; Teen Advisory Board members will not receive a stipend or any monetary compensation.


Participants are expected to attend monthly meetings as well as teen programs or events.  This is a one-year commitment.


Call The Family Resource Center for application and due dates. After your submission you will be contacted within 7 business days with an appointment for an interview. Interviews will be conducted at the TFRC office.  For more information, please call QuazZena Thomas at (803) 425-4357 or email qthomas@thefamilyresourcecenter.org
