About Us
About the Bartow Youth Action Team: The Bartow Youth Action Team is made up of about twenty five high school students from all of the local high schools within Bartow County and the city of Cartersville. We hold monthly meetings at 140 Douglas Street in Cartersville, where the team works to raise awareness around specific national campaigns and educate the Bartow community on issues such as: teen pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, underage alcohol use, texting and driving, bullying, etc. The youth also develop strategies needed to promote positive youth development and involvement within their community.
