Lindsey Meyer Teen Institute (LMTI)

The TI@ti peer leader, as an aspiring influential student at PCTI, will make a commitment to live a life of healthy choices, give back to the school community that has invested in him/her, and will demonstrate loyalty, as well as respect to the group and its fellow members. Students are nominated by a faculty member and must go through a selection process which includes a written response and interview. In order to be integrated into TI@ti, students must attend a mandatory, week-long Lindsey Meyer Teen Institute summer leadership conference in August.

Our mission is:
  • To teach our PCTVS peers and others in our community that one CAN and SHOULD live a happy, healthy, carefree lifestyle without the use of alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs.
  • To be leaders in our community by spreading positive messages about mental health, substance-free lifestyles, and the benefits of natural highs and taking positive risks.

Organization Activities

  • Bimonthly meetings on Tuesdays (or selected TI@ti meeting day)
  • Multiple community service opportunities
  • Committee action plans to spread messages of mental health awareness and anti-substance abuse
  • Development of communication skills while working in committees to collaborate in school-wide activities that promote the TI@ti mission

Do you know that...

  • We are like a family that will always be there for each other, whether the issue is school-related or not.
  • Living a healthy lifestyle is not that difficult if you surround yourself with like-minded individuals that want to bring you up, not tear you down.
  • You are lovable and capable! Remember one of our mantras, IALAC (I Am Lovable and Capable).
  • You will get comfortable with being uncomfortable.
  • You are not alone, your TI Ohana will be here for you always, whether it be in school or out.
