Teen Eagles is a great opportunity to join with other teens to learn, have fun and to make a positive difference in your community and country. Our Teen Eagles will meet monthly in person and online weekly to discuss current events and legislation while also learning skills in leadership, research and debate. There are also opportunities for students to intern with legislators during the 2020 AL legislative session. Teens represent a new generation of hope and promise, and our country needs young conservatives like them to get involved. Join our Facebook group: “Alabama Teen Eagles”.
To find out how you can join or start an Alabama Teen Eagles group in your area, contact Eagle Forum Teen Eagle Director, Lori Herring at [email protected] or call her at 334-301-4253. We are looking for volunteers to help with sponsorship of new groups. Please consider volunteering and making a difference in the lives of young people.
