Summer Teen Workshops at Montgomery County Women's Center
altMontgomery County Women's Center (MCWC) provides shelter, counseling, advocacy and accompaniment, legal services and transitional housing to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. In 2016 they started a Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) comprised of students from different high schools in Conroe and The Woodlands. MCWC acknowledges that youth are experts in their own lives and are key in developing solutions to the health issues in their lives. The primary function of the YAC is to recognize youth as valuable stakeholders and included them in the development, implementation, and evaluation of programming that the agency is delivering in schools and in the community. The committee meets bimonthly during the school year, offers weekly workshops over the summer and participates in monthly volunteering opportunities.
