OUR SHORT-TERM VISION: Every youth in Transylvania County feels heard and supported

OUR LONG-TERM VISION: Every youth in Transylvania County feels confident and secure in connection, purpose, and hope


Inspired by community concerns around mental health distress among our youth and building on existing efforts of the Transylvania County Youth Support Collaborative workgroups, TC STRONG was formed to create a broad coalition of youth, school, and community leaders that will develop and implement a strategic plan to address these concerns in a collaborative and effective way.

Upcoming Events

11/19/22: "Through Grief to Gratitude"

A youth-led event to shine light on youth mental health, developed by members of Voice of the Students. This event will provide an opportunity to connect with community, families, and peers to dispel stigma, share experience, offer solutions, and show support for one another.

Meet at Brevard College cafeteria at 2:30pm for a "Walk for Wellness" to Transylvania County Library. Event includes music, food, and activities from 3 pm to 6 pm at the library. Everyone in the community is invited to attend.
