When we meet
The Teen Life Council (TLC) holds meetings once a month at St. Louis Children’s Hospital with food, games, music, activities, and a chance to socialize with others within this age group all working toward making St. Louis Children’s Hospital a better place for teens. Two out of the twelve meetings scheduled in a year are replaced with a fun outing in the St. Louis area. In order to stay up-to-date with current activities, we have an e-mail listserv and a private Facebook group for the Teen Life Council (TLC). These communications serve the purpose for all council members and in particular, help those that would like to be involved but cannot commit to monthly meetings due to location and/or other restrictions, to be included in the discussion.
