BIG NEWS! In 2020-21 we’re trying something new; we’re combining the Teen Arts Pass Teen Council and the Teen Arts Leadership Summit Advisory Committee to create ONE awesome group of young leaders that will serve as the youth voice for teen-centric programming at Urban Gateways (including TAP + TALS!).

The Council is responsible for ensuring these programs best serve Chicago area teens by providing program and partner feedback, planning teen events, creating recruitment strategies and promotional materials, and more.

** Note: For teens who were planning to apply for the 2020-21 TAP Teen Council, this is the place to be – we hope you’ll apply for the Teen Advisory Council!
