TAG: Teen Advisory Group
The purpose of a TAG is to give local teens a voice and influence at MCPL. It's a way for you to express yourself through collaboration and practical experience. Being involved in a TAG can help you prepare for leadership roles later in life and give you experience you can use to promote yourself further in your educational and civic life. You will earn hands-on experience as content creators. TAGs help MCPL fulfill their mission to support teens and invest in their future by allowing staff to find out what resources they need to facilitate life transitions. Creating a sense of community and civic engagement is an unspoken purpose of the group in that ANY teen is welcome regardless of school, neighborhood, parental income, etc.
