The Jr. NAD Pages program was an idea shared by Bridgetta Bourne-Firl, who was one of the four student leaders during the Deaf President Now (DPN) movement in 1988. Bridgetta brought her son to the 2012 NAD Conference in Louisville, Kentucky. She suggested to Tawny Holmes (Education Strategy Team Chair) that a “pages program” be established; thus giving young people, like her son, a chance to experience the NAD Conference. Many state legislatures have a pages program affiliated with local high school students working closely with the state representatives. In 2014, the first Jr. NAD Pages program took place in Atlanta, Georgia and it was a huge success! We look forward to a fun and positive experience with the Jr. NAD Pages this summer!
Teens between 12 and 17 can attend the NAD Conference for free (with the exception of Meal Programs). After a certain number of volunteer hours, a Jr. NAD Page will receive a reimbursement check in the mail. If anyone is interested in certain events, there is a teen rate available. Please note, meals will be on your own.
We will be accepting a limited number of applicants, we will be in touch!
