Who Are We?
T-MAC (Teens Making A Change) is a community-based teen delinquency prevention and intervention program under the directorship of Dr. Sheila Morris, PsyD. Located in the city of Lancaster, CA, in the sprawling Antelope Valley, we are dedicated to combating teen delinquency in various neighborhood settings. T-MAC is a youth group consisting of males and females ranging in age from 12 to 19. Group members are diverse in ethnicity; however they are predominantly African American and Latino.
T-MAC serves as a place for teenage expression and adventure in the midst of declining economics and dwindling resources. T-MAC helps provide a cushion for the often-difficult transition from adolescence to adulthood. Primarily, the group deals with delinquent behavioral issues and how it affects the lives of inner city and urban youth. Through providing a place for teens to discuss issues important to them as well as promoting leadership and a sense of belonging, T-MAC has the potential to be the ideal prevention/intervention program for apartment living, school-based, and neighborhoods.
