Teen Advisory Board

The Teen Advisory Board (TAB) is for high school age teens interested in contributing to Brownell and the wider Essex Junction community. It is also a fun place to socialize with other teens in a safe, inclusive environment.

Meetings will be held under the pavilion on the second Friday of every month. Please wear a mask.
