The National Association of the Deaf (NAD) is pleased to announce that the 2013 NAD Youth Leadership Camp (YLC) will take place from June 20 through July 17. The Camp is a phenomenal and exciting experience for young deaf and hard of hearing students and takes place at Camp Taloali, which features 111 acres of forested land located in the foothills of Oregon’s gorgeous Cascade Mountains.

Young deaf and hard of hearing students are welcome to embark on this unforgettable journey this summer with NAD YLC. Campers and staff application forms are now online at www.nad.org/2013ylc. The camper application deadline is February 15, 2013 and the staff application deadline is March 1, 2013.

The NAD YLC is a one of a kind camp experience which offers intensive leadership development opportunities and focuses on advocacy, empowerment, deaf culture and heritage, current issues, group dynamics, outdoor activities, and much more. YLC encourages outstanding young deaf and hard of hearing students, grades 10 – 11, from diverse educational programs to develop advocacy and leadership skills. Those who attend the YLC will engage in ‘learning through active involvement' and acquire the skills to be productive citizens, conscientious leaders, and proactive self-starters in their respective schools and communities. The NAD is dedicated to providing opportunities for developing deaf and hard of hearing youth into future community leaders through this exciting summer program.
