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.

Applications for the 2020-21 Teen Advisory Council are now closed. Thank you for your interest! A member of our staff will get in touch with applicants soon.
