The Teen Council at Shedd Aquarium serves as a sounding board for questions, feedback and suggestions related to Shedd’s teen programs, activities and spaces. The council allows teens a voice in what Shedd can offer and ensures that we are continually connecting in ways that are relevant to the needs of Chicago-area teens. The Teen Council also provides teens with opportunities for building Shedd connections and their own Shedd teen community.
