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 the FARE Blog and other publications, serve as mentors, offer support for other teens who are seeking guidance, and help guide our youth programs.
Applying to be a TAG Member
The application for TAG 2019 has closed. TAG applications open in January each year.
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.
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 projects, create content for our website, and serve as leaders at FARE's national events. Teen advisors can be found around the United States.
