What is TALC?

Welcome to the TALC website!   TALC provides year-round programming for teen with chronic illness and their families.  We will be bringing in new members throughout the year. If you have questions or want to join, contact us at 401-444-7563 or



Leadership Council

The Leadership Council runs once a month (mostly the second Thursday of the month) and focuses on discussions about living with illness, skill-building and leadership.  Led by college mentors, the leadership group starts with a discussion around a topic, has interactive skill-building activities in topics chosen by the teens, and also gives members time to work on leadership projects.


Parent Council

The Parent Council takes place at the same time as the Leadership Council.  Teens and parents share a meal, then break into separate groups/rooms. The parent council is a led group, with topics chosen by participants.


Other TALC Programming

We provide period social events, art events, and host an annual overnight leadership camp on a college campus each year.  Members must be active in order to be eligible for the social events.
