FOR TEENS, BY TEENS

Who We Are...

We are a leadership board consisting of high school students who plan special events and programs for the Calabasas Community. Sponsored by the City of Calabasas, TAC is comprised of students who are currently attending local high schools. Our meetings are student governed with the assistance of City staff.

What We Do...

We organize and plan our own events as well as assist with City sponsored programs such as the annual Fine Arts Festival, Eggstravaganza, Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular and the Calabasas Pumpkin Festival.
