National Association for the Deaf Did Away with Miss Deaf America, Now What?
|Youth Ambassador Program Logo (NAD)|
Below is the video that was released requesting individuals to apply for the Youth Ambassador Program. The program is for individuals that range between the ages of 18 an 30. The competition is intended to replace the Miss Deaf America Pagent with the selection of two individuals to become ambassadors. They will work to implement a strategic plan that addresses social issues within the community. This will be in collaboration with the National Association for the Deaf. There are various events that these ambassadors will be attending including the Youth Leadership Camp, present at NAD presentations, workshops, and so forth. There are to be two representatives (one male, one female) and they will serve a two year term just like the Miss Deaf America Ambassador did.
If young adults between the age of 18 and 30 are interested in getting to know more about the Youth Ambassador Program and their requirements, they need to pay attention to how the program evolves over the next two years. The next competition is going to be in Phoenix, Arizona in 2016!
