Join the FARA Ambassadors for a hangout for teenagers, 13-19, with ataxia (of any form). FA Teen Hangouts are hour-long web-based hangouts. If you don't have ataxia, you are not allowed to participate in the hangout. This is simply a place to meet and talk to other people who may be going through struggles and good times similar to you. There will also be at least three adult FARA Ambassadors present. The adults will be there to help keep the conversation safe and going.
Join our Thursday night hangout this month in a discussion lead by FARA ambassadors Breaunnna Hoffman and Madelyn Fredrick about going back to school with ataxia during Covid 19. Are you getting ready to go back in person, online, or in some combination? Do you agree with your family's decision about going back to school? Are you worried? Are you excited?
Join us to talk or just listen. We are sure you'll find you aren't alone! It is just a relaxed conversation…the theme gets us going, but we definitely don't stick to it! It isn't counselling.
|When:||Thursday, August 27th, 8-9 PM ET
(The hangout opens 15 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 Zoom before.)
|Who:||Teens with ataxia ages 13 to 19 (Please note: all the teens will be together)
