Our Mission

TAG, Inc. is a student-run, non-profit organization, originating at Staples High School in Westport, Connecticut and founded by a group of students with the guidance of the late Chris Lemone LPC, our trusted advisor, counselor and friend who worked as the Student Outreach Counselor for the Town of Westport’s Department of Human Services from 1999 to 2015.  


The Teen Awareness Group was established in 2001. We are an alliance of high school students with diverse beliefs and opinions, from all backgrounds and social groups, dedicated to helping peers navigate the many pressures they face today; to take responsibility for themselves and others; and to manage the lures of unhealthy or risky behaviors through healthy social decision-making strategies.

TAG is known for taking a realistic and impactful approach to prevention.  We believe in engaging students in thoughtful discussions and activities which reduces risky behavior and promotes personal & shared responsibility in our community.
