Jefferson County Teen Advisory Board
Jefferson County Drug Prevention Coalition has a group of high school students on its Teen Advisory Board, also known as TAB. TAB believes that "students deserve a drug and alcohol free environment where they can focus on education and developing skills they need to meet their own goals.” It is made up of Jefferson County High School students who identify and enhance personal skills to effectively target communities’ challenges related to substance abuse, underage drinking, marijuana, and prescription drugs.
Benefits of TAB:
IT’S FREE!! Free to students to be apart of, free for students to go to conferences and/or trainings, and free to the schools to utilize the campaign materials the TAB students create.
