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 2015 is now closed. Applicants for 2016 should be individuals between the ages of 11 and 22 who are living with food allergies and want to help make a difference for teens locally and across the country. Applications will reopen in Winter 2015.

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.
