TARS In Action

Next TARS In Action:
September 28-29, 2019

Registration Info Coming Soon!

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.
