TSA's Youth Ambassador Program trains teens to talk about TS. The program gives young people with TS, their siblings, friends and classmates the preparation they need to speak about TS before their peers at school, sports leagues, scout troops, camps and after school programs. Presentations by these youth volunteers and their parent partners are free.
Wisconsin is proud to have three trained Youth Ambassadors. Here they are at the 2014 TS 5K walk.
Here are some pictures of Paige Bani, youth ambassador with some of her friends from the Northeastern Wisconsin Support Group!
