Youth Ambassador Program:
The National Tourette Syndrome Association offers a wonderful program called the Youth Ambassador Program. The program is held annually, typically in Washington DC, and is a multi-day program filled with educational opportunities, advocacy training, and networking for teens 13+ years old. More information can be found by clicking: HERE! Once trained, Youth Ambassadors play a critical role during the year by offering in-services at schools and other community gatherings in an effort to advocate and educate local communities about Tourette Syndrome.
We have a unique opportunity for high-school aged kids located in California that are pursuing a higher-education college degree program. This scholarship has been created and funded by one of our own local chapter families! At least one $1,000 scholarship per academic school year is expected to be awarded.
