Teen Task Force

What is the Johnson County Teen Task Force?

The Teen Task Force is a group of students in eighth through twelfth grade from across Johnson County. The Teen Task Force works as a team to prevent underage drinking, tobacco and other drug use and promote mental health.

Why be a part of the Teen Task Force?

This is a group for students who want to be a part of a county wide initiative to help make a difference in the local community. This group provides a great opportunity for collaboration with other students in the community along with service projects during the school year. Members of the Teen Task Force help plan and facilitate events and service projects. The group focuses on working with schools and the community to promote mental wellness, reduce suicide and prevent substance abuse.
