AUGUST 6 – 7, 2021
The 2021 NJCTS Tim Howard Leadership Academy remains virtual this year but features all new programming.
The Academy program will increase the participants’ understanding of their disorders and provide opportunities to explore and identify their strengths, while connecting with peers in the Tourette Syndrome community. They will also have the opportunity to meet and hear the stories of successful young adults who will serve as mentors, guiding participants on how to successfully tell their stories! Regardless of where participants are in with their comfort of self-advocacy and understanding and accepting their diagnoses, the academy has something to offer everyone in advancing to the next level with confidence, understanding, and resilience.
The Academy will take place over two full days and will include learning sessions, panel discussions, open forums for sharing, motivational speakers, and social time.
