Teen Advisory Group
FARE’s Teen Advisory Group (TAG) is our voice for the teen and young adult food allergy community. They write articles for our Teen Blog, website and other publications, serve as mentors and offer support for other teens who are seeking guidance, and help guide our youth programs.
Applying to be a TAG Member
The application window for 2016 is open until April 3. Applicants should be between the ages of 11 and 22, and should be individuals living with food allergies who want to make a difference for teens locally and across the country. You may access the application by clicking here.
Some issues our TAG members help to address include handling social situations, dining out, facing challenges unique to teens, and educating the community about what it means to be a teen with food allergies.
TAG members work on youth programs, creating content for our website and blog, and supporting and advocating for teens with food allergies across the country. They serve as leaders nationally and within in their geographic regions to provide peer-to-peer mentorship. Teen advisors can be found supporting programs in six different geographic areas: Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, New York/New England, Southeast, Southwest and West.
