Teens in Action Membership Benefits:

Teen Leadership Retreat WorkshopMonthly Teens in Action Meetings

Each meeting will include time to socialize with your friends and share about what you’ve been up over the past few weeks. In addition, at least an hour of each meeting will focus on a different workshop topic. While the first few meetings will be planned and facilitated by our staff, the TIA group will be asked to suggest, plan and lead new topics throughout the year alongside our staff, allowing for youth to share their voice and build leadership skills. Topics can range throughout any of our core focus areas, including community service, the environment, creative arts, healthy living, preparing for the future, learning communication skills, and building social skills.

Our  meetings will be at our West Seattle Office on the second Thursday of each month. On weekends, various service project opportunities will be available throughout the year.

Volunteer Opportunities

Active participants of our Teens in Action groups will be eligible for free, supervised volunteer opportunities at Camp Fire & Camp Sealth events. Teens can plan activities for younger youth, organize service projects for other teens to attend, attend service weekend’s at Camp Sealth, and more. All volunteer time will be provided with a service hour letter for your school community service requirements.
