Youth Group Activities

      Below is a list of some activities that the TACAS Youth Group plans and/or help coordinates. While these are the main activities that the Youth Group partakes in, they are not ALL the activities at the Youth Group does. For information concerning other events, please check the "Upcoming Events" section.

 Meals on Wheels

     This event is an easy, fun way for people to get involved in TACAS Youth Group activities. Meals on Wheels volunteers are driven around downtown Raleigh by adult chaperones to deliver meals to homebound, elderly, or disabled local residents who would otherwise be unable to maintain their dietary needs. So if you like to have some fun with your friends while doing a meaningful project, this is the one for you!

 Retirement House Recitals

     Though only in its second year, Retirement House Recitals have been very successful so far. Many people participate by performing, setting up, and helping out, and the performances are all very well-received by the audience. Most of these recitals involve the dancers from Chinese Language School, several musical showcases, and Chinese yo-yo exhibitions. If you play any musical instrument or have any other talents, you should definitely consider participating in this activity. Even if you are not a musician, or if you do not feel comfortable performing in front of others, you are still strongly encouraged to help out with these recitals: it's really fun!

 Habitat for Humanity

     New to this year's line-up of activities is Habitat for Humanity. Volunteers for this event get the chance to help build "simple, decent, affordable" houses for those in
need of adequate shelter. If you like hands-on construction, or even if you don't, you should definitely participate in this event. If you have never built a house before...don't worry, no experience is necessary! There will be adults who are knowledgeable about building that will help you get started. Unfortunately, because of the safety concern, Wake County's Habitat for Humanity only allows for those 16 and up to participate. If you're not yet 16, don't worry, just be sure you get involved in Habitat for Humanity when you are.

 Wintergreen Ski Trip

     In the month of February, when the air is crisp and brisk, the Youth Group embarks on a single-day round-trip journey to Wintergreen Ski Resort to have some fun in the snow. Skiers and snowboarders of all ages and levels have all thoroughly enjoyed this Saturday trip in the past. If you have never skied before, this is a great opportunity for you to get introduced to a truly exciting sport. And if you have skied before, this is a great opportunity for you to ski alongside your friends and have some fun.

 Beach Trip

     Every year, around the end of school, the Youth Group goes on a beach trip. Though in the past this trip has been during Memorial Weekend, because of all the snow make-up days, this year, the four-day long beach trip will take place in early June (exact dates will be announced in the "Upcoming Events" section). Everyone is invited to participate in this activity, which has always been a huge success. Not only will you have lots of fun in the sun, you'll be able to mingle with your friends and get to know other Youth Group members better through activities such as capture-the-flag, clamming, crabbing, walks on the beach, and many, many others. It's sure to be a blast! Be sure you're there for all the fun!

 Puppet Show

     Using shadow puppets to reenact Chinese folk stories and myths, the Youth Group Puppeteers introduce and share parts of Chinese culture and tradition with the audience. The performances usually take place at local libraries, special events at places such as Duke University and the N.C. School of Science and Math, and any other location the puppeteers are invited to perform. If you are interested in sharing Chinese culture with others while entertaining them at the same time, then a puppeteer is the job for you.

 Christmas Party

     The TACAS Youth Group Christmas Party is a chance for everyone to get together and have some fun before everyone leaves for winter break vacation. With a DJ playing the latest songs, a table full of food, and a wide dance floor, the Christmas Party is the perfect way to finish off the year with a blast. What's better than hanging out with your friends, eating, and listening to music?

 Mother’s Day Picnic

    At the annual Mother’s Day Picnic, Youth Group members help out with setup, the charity bake sale, the festivities and other activities. If you're into having a relaxing time while doing something nice for your mother, don't miss the chance to join in helping out at this event!
