T.E.A. Club

Welcome to TEA ClubSticker ShockTobacco FreeTobacco Day 3Tobacco Day 4

Omak High School’s (T.E.A. Club) Teaching Everyone Awareness Club began in 2018.  The T.E.A. 
Club's mission is to provide resources and opportunities to empower Omak youth to prevent substance use and promote a healthy and safe environment.  The TEA Club works in partnership with the Okanogan County Community Coalition and collaborates with organizations/businesses interested in promoting positive health (physical, emotional, intellectual, social, financial, occupational, environmental). 

During the 2018-2019 school year the T.E.A. Club members trained other students about suicide warning signs and what steps to take to get help to prevent suicide using Forefront in Schools “LEARN” message.  During Mental Health Awareness week, they gave out information on managing stress, anxiety, bullying, depression, and mental health resource providers in our community came and offered information to students at the High School.  With the support and assistance of Genes Harvest Foods and Okanogan County Community Coalition the T.E.A. Club Sticker Shocked Beer and Wine beverages at Genes Harvest Foods with alcohol warning stickers stating that it is illegal to purchase or provide alcohol for anyone under the age of 21.  The T.E.A. Club also gave out information attached to tea bags to students during Tobacco Free Youth Day. 

This school year the T.E.A. Club members will be working towards attending the Washington State Prevention Summit to learn culturally competent training to bring back and integrate prevention efforts into the Omak community and schools in the prevention of substance abuse, violence, and other destructive behaviors.
