Teen Advisory Board, also known as TAB, consists of teenagers that create programs targeting other teens to improve our community. These teens are taking the initiative to reach out to others in their community by spreading the word starting from people their own age.

This website will provide information regarding programs we have started. It is a reference point for the people involved in our existing clubs and a place for those who have expressed interest in joining our activities.

We are working closely with Fairfax County to organize events and bring in guest speakers to host our own programs. If you’re a local teenager with a skill or passion you would like to share with the community, you are welcome to contact us to with program ideas!
