National Teen Age Republicans (TARs) is the youth wing of the United States Republican Party.

TARs have a presence in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia, with membership in the tens of thousands.[1] The oldest recorded TAR group is in South Dakota, which was formed in 1960.[2]

TARs are one of the three official "youth wings" of the Republican National Committee, along with Young Republican National Federation and College Republicans.

Teenage Republican Leadership Conference[edit]

Since the 1970s, National TARs has hosted an annual Teen Age Republican Leader Conference (TLC) where TAR members can meet members of the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate, learn club and federation development, and meet members from other states. During TLC, National TARs also host an annual awards ceremony where members can win awards such as "Rising Star", "Outstanding TAR In the Nation" and "Outstanding TAR Club in the Nation".[3]
