The Family Resource Center is inviting Kershaw County teens in seventh through 12th grades or ages 13-19 years of age to apply for a volunteer position on the Teen Advisory Board (TAB).

TAB is a volunteer board of the Family Resource Center. TAB members will provide volunteer support; participate in activity planning and promotion, teen empowerment, and teen pregnancy prevention programming in and around the schools and community.

Under close supervision, volunteers in the TAB will offer suggestions and provide valuable input about teen interests, issues, and activities/program planning. This will make the teen pregnancy prevention programs of FRC more “teen-friendly.”
The benefits for teens if they become a part of the TAB, include: meeting and interacting with other teens, developing leadership and team working skills, and obtaining recognition to use on high school and college applications. Additionally, 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.

Applications are asked to be mailed to, or dropped off at the Family Resource Center office at 1111Broad St., Suite 300, P.O. Box 282 by Nov. 20. If you have any questions or would like more information, call Aisha Wilson at 425-4357.
