Stories of Jr. NAD: Generation Z
Wednesday, May 17, 2023
The NAD Deaf Youth Well-Being priority committee is tasked to gain a better understanding and strengthen inclusive mental health-centered mentoring for deaf youth to promote their leadership development. Deaf Youth panelists will share their experiences including what worked for them and what are the challenges of leadership opportunities, finding a mentor, personal experiences of navigating through the COVID pandemic, and their hopes for the future of Jr. NAD chapters. After the webinar, you will learn some of the possible common success strategies and challenges for deaf youth to thrive in leadership opportunities.
