The annual National Deaf Youth Day on March 6th celebrates the unique identity of deaf and hard of hearing youth and their accomplishments. For the first time this year, the NAD will co-host a mock interview event with four Jr. NAD chapters, one from each region, for deaf and hard of hearing students. This new event will allow students an opportunity to experience and practice their interview skills with real employers! We will be partnering with local organizations and companies to do these mock interviews. Nearly 100 deaf youth are expected to participate. The National Deaf Youth Day events are part of a larger project between NAD and The Starbucks Foundation aimed at inspiring and empowering deaf and hard of hearing youth (ages 18-30) to explore a variety of career and employment options.”
