EXCITING EVENTS AND PROGRAMS COMING UP FOR OUR NJCTS FAMILIES!
NJCTS Tim Howard Leadership Academy
Applications are due for the NJCTS Tim Howard Leadership Academy! Please get yours in or contact us at admissions@njcts.org to let us know it's on the way.

The NJCTS Tim Howard Leadership Academy is designed to develop self-leadership, advocacy skills, and resilience in teens with Tourette Syndrome (TS) and its associated disorders. The program increases the participants’ understanding of their disorders and provides opportunities and a safe environment to explore and identify their strengths, challenges, needs, and skills.
NJ Walks for TS
The NJ Walks for TS Virtual Walk will allow your family and friends to show support wherever you choose anytime in March, April or May . The Walk promotes awareness, acceptance, action, and advocacy and is a chance to stand up and break the stigma attached to TS. Sign up to be a team captain and we will help you set up your own fundraising page online and help promote your event. Register by March 1 to get your team name listed on the event t-shirt!
Youth Advocacy Workshop
March 21 - Basking Ridge
Throughout our Youth Advocacy Workshop, we will take some time to get to know each other, hear from some current Youth Advocates about their TS and advocacy journeys, and explore ways to become involved with NJCTS in your own community.
Family Retreat Weekend
NJCTS welcomes families to enjoy some time away from it all at the NJCTS Family Retreat Weekend at YMCA Camp Bernie in beautiful Hunterdon County, June 5 to 7 . The weekend allows children and their families to meet others with Tourette Syndrome, learn more about their diagnosis, and engage with peer mentors in a fun, safe environment.

Kids enjoy canoeing, swimming, wall climbing, archery, arts & crafts, rekindling old friendships, and cultivating new ones. Parents join in many activities with their children but also connect with other parents and share their stories.
TS Awareness Day - June 4
New Jersey declared June 4 to be TS Awareness Day every year, but would you like it officially declared in YOUR hometown? Write a letter to your mayor asking for the designation of June 4, 2020 as "TS Awareness Day in your town ," and be sure to include why YOU think it’s important to bring awareness to your hometown. Official proclamation is included below. You may even be asked to attend a council meeting to have the proclamation formally presented to you!
Please don't forget that you can call or email us anytime with questions or for referrals for doctors and special needs lawyers. Our searchable webinar archive covers many relevant topics and our staff is always available to reach out to your child's school.
