TEENPOWER ADULT ADVISOR INFORMATION & EXPECTATIONS

If your club is sending a team of students to a summer TEENPOWER conference, Youth Resources HIGHLY ENCOURAGES an advisor’s attendance at the conference. We understand you are making a big commitment to your youth already but having adult advisors at summer TEENPOWER  is tremendously beneficial to your club’s project planning during Team Time.

One hour is set aside each day of TEENPOWER for your clubs to meet during a period called Team Time. The purpose of Team Time is for clubs to organize ATOD-free events and activities in their schools or community during the upcoming school year. Each team is responsible for writing an action plan for at least one prevention-based event or activity at the conference. A copy of that action plan should be submitted to Youth Resources’ TEENPOWER Coordinator Bailey Daniels

Adult advisors are welcome to participate throughout the duration of summer TEENPOWER,  join the Adult Staff, and be a part of the ongoing family groups. Youth Resources does require the presence of at least one adult advisor during the one-hour Team Time period each day if your school is sending a team to a TEENPOWER conference.

Each school/organization is allowed meals for one adult per every paid 10 participants from their school/organization. Youth Resources does not require adult advisors to stay overnight or participate in daily family groups, but please inform Bailey Daniels if you would like to do either. At Middle School TEENPOWER, we do ask that adult advisors stick around for the Monday Night Activity on June 17 to help facilitate game stations with all kinds of fun (our high school staff will take care of all the planning, they just need you to assist in the facilitation!).

If you have questions or if you are are interested in serving on the Adult Staff to be more hands on with participants throughout the TEENPOWER conference, please contact Bailey Daniels at bailey@youth-resources.org.
