Joint Services Teen Council conduct a forum to discuss issues facing military teens and families
The Joint Services Teen Council (JSTC) comprised of members from the Air Force Teen Council (AFTC), Army Teen Panel (ATP) and Navy Teen Council (NTC) met in San Antonio, TX to provide orientation and training to the Joint Services Teen Council members, conduct a forum to discuss issues facing military teens and families, and develop plans to support the 2015 JSTC Operation Mega Phone Lock-In event. Forty-three JSTC members worked together throughout the week to identify issues and discuss action plans to support military teens; in addition, each group met as an individual Service team to prepare for their unique teen panel initiatives, briefed their respective Service leaders and provided a unified briefing at the end of the week to Army, Air Force and Navy leadership.
The JSTC discussed pertinent issues facing military teens, voted on the top four and formed working groups to identify possible solutions. The teens identified the following issues: Support Programs for Wounded Warrior teens, transitioning youth and National Guard and Reserve teens; School Credit Transfers; College Prep Opportunities; and Lack of Participation. The JSTC meets regularly via quarterly conference calls to discuss work within their respective regions, share best practices and plan for the 2015 Operation Mega Phone event.
The mission of the Joint Services Teen Council (JSTC) is to advocate for military youth and teens around the world, foster communication with military leadership and enact positive change in the community.
