What does the Teen Advisory Council Do and Who Is On It?

HC DrugFree’s Teen Advisory Council provides the youth perspective to the staff and Board of Directors of HC DrugFree to increase the effectiveness of HC DrugFree’s programs, newsletters, website and other services.

The Teen Advisory Council is composed of Howard County high school students (public, private and home school) who meet monthly during the school year to discuss teen use of alcohol and other drugs, and to develop educational messages that promote HC DrugFree’s vision of a county where teens are drug-free by choice.

High school teens from both public and private schools in Howard County attend HC DrugFree’s Teen Advisory Council meetings at The Barn in the Oakland Mills Village Center.
