Level Up Your Leadership
2019-2020 TASC State Project


Dear TASC,

As TASC student leaders, we actively address real world issues in order to leave our world better than we found it. Substance abuse is a prominent issue facing schools and communities in our state and across the nation. The use of harmful substances such as vapes, e-cigarettes, alcohol, prescription and recreational drugs continues to plague teens. TASC intends to bring accessible and effective information and projects to the forefront by providing awareness, positive actions, and activities for students, teachers, parents and community members.

TASC challenges you to Level Up Your Leadership by joining us in fighting the causes and effects of substance abuse. It is important to recognize that our actions and choices can either benefit or harm ourselves and/or others. Too often teens get caught up in what seems to be the norm without considering the effects and consequences of those actions. It’s all fun and games until it’s not.

Let’s work together to take back the mental and physical health of our society by being proactive about substance abuse. We have the power to educate, advocate and participate in a project that will turn one Red Ribbon Week into a year of substance abuse awareness and positive action. The time is now, TASC.

Level Up Your Leadership. You only have one life. #itsnotagame

Yours in leadership,

Jenna Williamson, Maggi Gallaspy, Libby Lester,
