Ponte Vedra High School’s Teens Take A Stand is a high-school student run organization. Founded in 2016, the club has actively fundraised to support the Hubbard House and the Betty Griffin Center- both Northeast Florida nonprofit agencies that provide services to survivors of domestic and/or sexual abuse. It is the only high-school club in the Jacksonville area of its type. This year’s event is chaired by Ponte Vedra High School Seniors Grace Freedman, Carissa Clough, Charlotte Moore and Junior Chase Magnano with many other club members actively involved to ensure a successful program.
