Current Projects:

'Mindfulness Mondays': The Teen Council members are passionate about the effects of stress on high school students in Steamboat. Their way to reduce stress is to incorporate different mindfulness techniques into their classrooms. They presented to all of the teachers at their all staff meeting and were met with great enthusiasm. They suggested techniques such as quietly breathing, calming music, or stretching before class to help calm student's brains and get them ready to focus during class. 

Anti-Tobacco - The students worked hard to create a display for the Great American Smokeout in the school about the harmful effects of tobacco on the body, especially lungs. This display has been a huge eye opener to the students, as one of the materials inside the display is an actual black lung of a smoker. See the display below:

Leadership Opportunities:
In October, several TC members attended the CO9to25 Youth Summit in Denver. We spent the day listening to guest speakers, and setting ART Goals. We learned various ways to make and stick with our goals until attained.
