Christ Child is pleased to support TACSC (The Association of Catholic Student Councils), a great organization dedicated to developing leadership skills in middle school kids.

The Association of Catholic Student Councils, TACSC, was formed at the request of the California Superintendent of Catholic Schools in 1982. TACSC’s founder, Marilyn Thickett, created an organization to guide student government and its formation in Catholic schools. After gaining popularity in Southern California, TACSC expanded its leadership programs to Northern California and the East Coast. For nearly 30 years, TACSC has delivered a wide variety of leadership development programs for Catholic elementary and junior high schools throughout California and across the United States. At last count, more than 15,000 students and hundreds of school administrators have participated in TACSC leadership activities. TACSC continues to provides education and training to help make leadership an integral part of young Catholics’ lives.

The goal of TACSC is to:

INSPIRE students to assume leadership roles in their schools, churches, and communities;

TEACH students life leadership skills that can be applied inside and outside the classroom;

GUIDE the growth and development of student councils and other organizations within schools;

SUPPORT moderators’ and administrators’ efforts to maximize their students’ leadership potential.

Please join us in helping a student in need and give them the life-changing gift of leadership. $700 will send one student to a summer conference. In 2014, we sponsored a student from Nativity.

Your support will enable students to attend a summer conference and learn invaluable life lessons. Summer lasts for just a few weeks but leadership lasts a lifetime. Any donation large or small makes a life changing impact.

Our Christ Child Auction 2016 supported a Fund-A-Project for TACSC.  We were incredibly blessed with many donations exceeding 1,000.00 – thank you.  Christ Child Pasadena supported the efforts of TACSC this year by our Auction Fund-a-Project.  Heidi Johnson, our own Christ Child member, introduced
