Purple Patch Teen

Welcome to Purple Patch Teens:

A Community for TEENS with VITILIGO to Connect and Communicate!

Purple Patch TEEN is a group specifically designed for teenagers with vitiligo between the ages of 13 and 20, which was founded in January 2023. The group is led by a Group Leader and Co-Leader, supported by a team of Parent Advisors and several Teen Leaders. The community plans to organize various events, host speakers, celebrate teen successes, and even have game nights and TIK-TOK & Instagram connections. Join us for all this and more!

Upcoming Meetings

We offer virtual meetings for our teens to connect and collaborate.  Topics range from motivational speakers, authors, makeup tips, back to school, how to deal with bullies, loving the skin you're in, latest treatments, journaling, and more! 


These meetings require registration and are monitored by a member of our VITFriends® corporate community.
