Teen Activities

We are on a mission to keep teens in our area healthy, active, and engaged! Check this page frequently for ways to get involved.

Teen Advisory Committee

Are you a teen or know someone looking to get involved, have some fun, and make a difference? Join the Teen Advisory Committee!

Our Teen Advisory Committee is a committee of local Middle and High School students that partner with PenMet Parks to help plan and execute events and other recreation opportunities for local teens!

The Teen Advisory Committee is a great way to:

  • Connect with other local teens and get involved in teen-related programs
  • Gain experience in leadership and working with others in planning events and activities
  • Obtain volunteer hours for school or to add to your resume
  • Help foster a connected teen community in Gig Harbor

The Teen Advisory Committee meets twice monthly on Wednesdays.
