Teens Acting for Social Change

TASC youth fight for $15

Teens Acting for Social Change (TASC) is a group of energized teens making a difference in our world. TASCers build community, learn about social justice issues, and take action.

Teens run the group with the assistance of our adult coordinator, Liz Krushnic. TASC meets on alternating Sundays during the school year at various Boston locations.
For a sense of what TASC will be up to during the 2016-2017 schol year, here is a sampling of what the teens accomplished last year:
  • TASC participated in three anti-oppression trainings on racism, classism, and sexism

  • TASC gained skills in facilitation, signature collection, door-knocking, phone banking, and meeting with a legislator

  • TASC participated in several campaigns including Fight for $15, the Fair Share Amendment ballot initiative, and the Youth Jobs Coalition

  • TASC connected with the Shule community by:

    • Performing a skit about TASC at the Shule Chanukah Party

    • Marshalling at the 5th grade Labor Protest

    • Organizing parents to call their representatives to support youth jobs at the Shule Purim Party

    • Facilitating a racial justice workshop for the 5th grade class

    • Welcoming the graduating 7th graders into TASC at their B’Nei Mitzvah

 
TASC is open to Shule graduates and all interested teens in 8th, 9th, and 10th grade!
