Teen Advisory Committee Recognized for Service to the Community
The Baltimore Ravens have a strong commitment to making a difference in the community and so do our local youth! This football season marks the 16th Annual “Honor Rows” Program designed to recognize local youth who provide outstanding service to their communities. The River Hill Community Association’s Teen Advisory Committee (TAC) was one of 18 youth groups selected to be 2015 “Honor Rows” recipients. Honorees were selected by a panel of youth service leaders, with the assistance of Baltimore Ravens, the Governor’s Office on Service and Volunteerism, and M&T Bank staff. Honorees are chosen based on one or more of the following guidelines:
• The extent to which the group meets the need of the surrounding community;
• The extent to which the group develops the leadership, personal and social skills of its members; and
• The involvement of at-risk youth, among the group’s members and/or the community the group serves.
The Association’s TAC was selected as “Honor Rows” recipients based on their outstanding contributions to improving the health of our community. For three years, the TAC has played a significant role in organizing and running the River Hill Health Fair. The TAC works in conjunction with the local non-profit Coalition Halting Obesity in Children Everywhere (CHOICE) to provide a fun-filled day of access to local health care providers, health education, and programs to boost physical activity. The TAC is also responsible for providing all the volunteers needed to run the event. Representatives from the TAC and teen volunteers were honored at the Ravens vs Bengals game at M & T Bank Stadium on Sunday, September 27. They enjoyed a beautiful fall day, time on the field while the Ravens warmed-up, and a game that though a loss for the Ravens had some exciting plays. Congratulations to the River Hill TAC, they are “winners!”
