Teens In Action

Teens In Action® (TIA) is a weekly service and leadership-based club built on Camp Fire’s long tradition of recognizing youth as part of the solution to, and not the problem with, today’s social challenges. Youth in this program will exercise their power to make a difference in their community while building genuine leadership and communication skills.

TIA combines small group meetings, field trips, community volunteering, and mentoring to inspire vision for the future. Clubs are youth-led and youth-driven, guided by adult facilitators. Through our service-learning framework, teens identify community needs, brainstorm and develop service projects to address the needs they are most passionate about, then take action to make a difference in their communities.

TIA at your school?

Teens-In-Action can be a school-sponsored club. If your school is interested in hosting a club exclusively for your campus, we can tailor a program to the needs of your students. Contact us at for information.
