The Teen Outreach Program (TOP) is an after school club at the Vernal Middle School and Uintah Middle School, through TriCounty Health Department. It is a positive youth development program, where youth learn life skills pertaining to communication, health and wellness, emotion management skills, and much more. Each year we participate in a minimum of 20 hours of service, many of which we do as a group. The program is youth led and facilitator guided, which means the youth get a voice in which types of service we participate in, and what lessons they need to learn.
For our first service project of the year, the youth at both the Vernal Middle School and Uintah Middle School have chosen to do a pet supply drive for the Uintah County Animal Shelter. They are asking for donations of old t-shirts, towels, and blankets, as well as wet and dry food, treats, toys, beds and books. If there is anything you can provide you can bring those items to one of our drop boxes at the Vernal Middle School, TriCounty Health Department, or Aaron’s. This drive will last until December 4, and we will be delivering all donations to the Animal Shelter on December 6, when we go to tour their facility.
We are also happy to get new members of our TOP Club so if you have a child that would be interested in joining we meet at the Vernal Middle School on Wednesdays after school, and the Uintah Middle School after school, for one hour each.
