Join the FARA Ambassadors for a hangout for teenagers, 13-19, with ataxia (of any form). FA Teen Hangouts are hour-long web-based video chats for the entire group of participants! If someone doesn't have ataxia, they are not allowed to participate in the hangout. At each Hangout, there will be at least three adult FARA Ambassadors present, helping to keep the conversation safe and going.
The Theme: "FA Advocacy." We will talk about what it means to advocate for FA, some ways to do it, and some experiences we had doing that! Since this is just a relaxed conversation...the theme is a great foundation for the Hangout, but we don't always stick to it!
When: Thursday, March 28th, 8-9 PM ET (The hangout opens 30 minutes early to try to work out technical issues. Please remember we are volunteers, not IT professionals! Come early if you've never attended a hangout on WebEX before.)
Who: Teens with ataxia ages 13 to 19 (Please note: all the teens will be together this month, but we plan to host separate hangouts for young and older teens in the future.)
Where: On WebEx so if you have access to the internet, speakers, and a camera on your device, you can come!
