TeenHangoutsMarch18Join the FARA Ambassadors for a Google hangout for teenagers with ataxia. 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 at least three adult FARA Ambassadors present. The adults will be there to help keep the conversation safe and going.

The theme this month will be: a discussion about the film The Ataxian. We ask participants to view the film first and bring your thoughts and questions. You can stream the film at:
Google Play

*Teens who are signed up, with the appropriate consent can, upon request, be reimbursed for renting the film.

We plan to be joined by a couple of our fellow ataxians featured in the film. While we can’t guarantee that, it is the plan and we are super excited.

When: Thursday, March 29th 8-9PM ET (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!
