The FARA Ambassador Program is excited to announce the third Google hangout for teenagers with FA. it is an hour-long web-based hang out. If you don't have ataxia, you are not allowed to participate in the hang out. There will also be two or three adult FARA Ambassadors present. The adults will be there just to help keep the conversation safe and going. We have themes for discussion, but they are just to give us a framework we don’t have to talk about the theme. Hopefully it is a way for you to connect with other people experiencing similar if not the same things as you.
The theme this month will be: new year, new you. What are your plans for 2018? How has having FA affect your plans or does it?
When: Thursday, January 25th @8-9PM ET (The hangout opens 15 minutes early to try to work out technical issues, please remember we are volunteers not IT professionals.)
Who: Teens 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 Google hangouts so if you have access to the Internet and speakers and a camera on your device, you can come!
