The New Braunfels Teens Aspiring to Serve Christ (TASC) Volunteer Group is in its third year and we are excited to announce we have made a few changes and look forward to this group growing and that YOU will join!
The biggest change is ages 10-12 are welcomed to volunteer with a parent present. Responsible teens (ages 13 and up) that are capable of following the organization’s guidelines and will respect the adult supervisor’s guidance can be dropped off or drive themselves to events. Parents can coordinate rides with other parents.
Another change we are excited about is more fun! We will have a monthly service event and fun as well as a monthly social time to have some fun! The student council plans are made by the teens, so join the group and help plan these monthly events!
What is TASC you ask? We are teens that take on the task! The student council leads and the adult supervisors help as needed. See the list of student council leaders and open positions below. Contact us if you may be interested in rising to the challenge and joining the student council.
Here is the tentative plan with 2 activities per month (except December and May). Service and fun on one day and another optional time of fun:
What does this add up to?
So in 10 months, 18 times for your teen to be with other teens serving and having fun. Are you in? YES! Let’s do this!
PARENTS! You can join in the fun! We would like 2-3 more adult supervisors! This is not a huge commitment and not a ton of time is needed. It is a great way to serve alongside your child and have some fun too! These events are great ways to connect with your child and get to know other teens while helping facilitate healthy friendships in constructive ways that help them grow and improve their character. So email email@example.com with questions or let us know you are in!
Check out TASC, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org we will add you to our invitation list for our next online meeting. Come join the fun!
