Join the FARA Ambassadors for a 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: What do you do for fun? Tell us about your hobbies, sports, books, movies, etc.
When: Thursday, February 22nd @8-9PM ET -or- Saturday, February 24th @2-3PM EST. (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 before.)
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!
How: You need to get your parents or guardian to sign a consent form (click HERE). This should be emailed to email@example.com. Parents/guardians can also ask questions at this email address. Additionally, they can get a consent form here if they need to. Then, email firstname.lastname@example.org and request to join. A minimum of a half hour before the hangout opens you will be sent a link to join the hangout. Please note: if you have a free Google Plus account it makes it easier for us to invite you and make sure you get the invitation so, we recommend (not require!) getting one.
Please send an email to either address if you have questions!
See you soon!
