ACCESS ACTS (Active Community Teen Service) is seeking 10 high school students who want get involved in their community and stand up for the rights of others.
ACCESS ACTS was started in 2007 as a high school youth program dedicated to building leadership skills through advocacy and civic engagement. The program gives teens the opportunity to participate in community service, advocate on self-identified issues and encourage their fellow youth to turn out to the election polls, among other things.
The group consists of 35 students from various high schools in Metro Detroit who serve as leaders through community service. The students identified four major issues to focus on this year: drug abuse, cyber bullying, college and adult life preparedness, and stereotyping in extracurricular activities.
