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.

  • Feel empowered to make a difference

  • Community service hours available

For more information, please contact Joan Webb Scornaienchi, Executive Director at 443-325-0040 or e-mail joan@hcdrugfree.org.
