It is time for the 2018 Youth Ambassador Training in which the Tourette Association finds youth that are interested in becoming ambassadors for the Tourette Community. Youth Ambassadors support their community by advocating for their peers at school, sporting events, social events and after school programs.
The Tourette Association seeks at least one teen & parent/guardian team from each Tourette Association Chapter or Affiliated Support Group (or at least one team per state not served by a Tourette Association Chapter/Affiliated Support Group) to attend the upcoming training.

If chosen as a Youth Ambassador, a youth will have an opportunity to discuss Tourette syndrome and Tic Disorders in Congress during their training dates during their “Trip to the Hill.” This program not only serves to as an opportunity to advocate for your community, but also a great way to learn skills for leadership.

Training Dates: February 27-March 1, 2018
Where: Renaissance Capital View Hotel in Arlington, VA
Who: Teen (Youth Ambassador) and their parent/adult guardian
Youth Ambassador Program Information: Youth Ambassador Program
