The Junior NAD is a coalition of individual chapters all over the nation.
As a program of the NAD, the Junior NAD offers deaf and hard of hearing
students in 7th through 12th grade many opportunities to develop
leadership skills, learn and demonstrate citizenship, and meet and
interact with students from other schools and states. Students can
participate in the Junior NAD by joining chapters established by their
Junior NAD chapters focus on advocacy, attitude, awareness, commitment,
cooperation, friendship, information exchange, involvement and leadership
skills. Chapters have meetings and participate in many activities such as
community events and fundraisers. Skills and values obtained by chapter
members during these meetings and events will help them to become future
leaders and advocates in the deaf and hard of hearing community.
