My first TAR event was TARS in Action and it was a great way to start out my TAR experience. First off, all of the TARS were so welcoming, making my experience 10 times better and I met some of my best friends through TIA. I actually had fun while volunteering. You learn so much while helping others in need or helping Republicans get elected. Plus, you get to destroy Dusty in go-karts. TARS in Action is a good way to be introduced into the exciting world of Teenage Republicans. I am positive that you will have an amazing and unforgettable experience.

TARS in Action is a high-energy weekend retreat focused on grassroots involvement. TARS In Action features engaging speakers, fun activities, campaigning for statewide and local candidates (election years), community service projects (non-election years) and an evening at the Thunder Road Family Fun Center. Each year the TARs also present the George S. Mickelson Service Award to someone who has made a tremendous and long-lasting contribution to our state.
 
TARS in Action costs $40, which includes all food, chaperoned lodging at a hotel, and transportation during the event. Financial assistance is always available! A great time is guaranteed!
