Teen Age Republicans or "TAR" is a political youth organization that is an official auxiliary to the United States Republican Party. There are various TAR clubs throughout the United States, at county and state levels. TAR has a presence in all 50 states, as well as the District of Columbia, and has membership in the tens of thousands. Clubs are organized on and off campus into middle school, high school, home-schooled, county and city clubs. The oldest recorded Teen Age Republican Federation is in South Dakota. This Federation was formed in 1960.
TAR provides support to the Republican party and its candidates. TAR members work across the United States to perform community service, develop leadership skills, gain first-hand knowledge of practical political process and apply all these to sway elections in the favor of the Republican Party.
 OrganizationTAR is organized in chapters across United States. There are federations in most states, and clubs in counties and high schools. The organization structure consists of:
National TAR office - serves only two main functions:
1.provide information on existing clubs and/or provide resources and advice on starting a club in areas that do not already have one
2.organise the national Teenage Leadership Conference (TLC) and awards ceremony
State TAR federations - similar to the Republican Party, the majority of TAR activity takes place on the State level:
receive some financial support from their state Party
most have an elected executive board with its own constitution
organise statewide events (e.g. summer camp,
mock legislative sessions)
County and Local Clubs - sub-ordinate to state organizaions
formed at county, city or school level
