28th Biennial Jr. NAD National Conference

March 17 – 22, 2022

The Jr. NAD, a program of the NAD, offers deaf and hard of hearing students in 7th through 12th grade 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 Jr. NAD by joining chapters established by their schools. Jr. 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. Contact us for a Jr. NAD Chapter Kit today or fill out the membership form to join today!

Chapters in good standing will be eligible to attend our biennial Jr. NAD National Conference. The 28th Jr. NAD National Conference will take place on March 17 – 22, 2022 at California School for the Deaf, Riverside in Riverside, CA. Stay tuned for more information!
