Support Group Volunteers
The Tourette Alliance is currently working to establish local support groups and is in search of volunteers to serve as group leaders. Local support groups will allow those with common experiences or concerns to provide each other with encouragement, comfort, and advice. The role we hope to emphasis is helping those with Tourette Syndrome and their loved ones realize that they are not alone—that there are other people who have the same problems.
If you have a need in your area and are interested in volunteering please contact us!
Youth Representative Program
Tourette Syndrome is a very complex neurological spectrum disorder. Tourette Syndrome and Tic Disorders affect one in every 100 school age children. It negatively impacts student achievement. Even more damaging for young people, it impacts their self-esteem, their ability to have friends, their ability to socialize and carry on the normal quality of life that we all take for granted.
The Tourette Alliance Youth Representative Program gives children who are diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome and Tic Disorders the opportunity to help thousands of children and young people just like them—children who struggle every day to lead normal lives, despite the ridicule, stigma and isolation that comes with their awful disease.
The Youth Representative Program is designed for young adults (ages 12-22) who are interested in joining the ranks of the Tourette Alliance as youth advocates. If you or your child is interested please reach ou
