A Junior is a DAR member age 18 through 35 years of age (until her 36th birthday). She may page at the state conference and Continental Congress until her 41st birthday. She holds full DAR membership, and when qualified, may serve as an officer and chairman at the national, state, and chapter levels. Junior Members are encouraged to learn and to lead in support of DAR objectives. Junior Members attend meetings, volunteer to serve on committees, subscribe to the DAR Magazine, and study the DAR Handbook to learn more about DAR. Tennessee Juniors participate in activities which benefit the NSDAR Helen Pouch Fund and State Society endeavors such as the Molly Stewart Fund.
Many Tennessee Junior Members join with their mothers, grandmothers, and aunts. Tennessee Junior Members are college students, career women, and stay-at-home moms. TSDAR chapters understand the time and family constraints and are making many efforts to accommodate these young women. The Tennessee Society supports junior membership by encouraging active participation within all levels of the organization.
Junior Members join DAR for a variety of reasons and have diverse interests; however, working together for a common goal forges many friendships and offers endless opportunities for personal and professional growth inside and outside of DAR. Junior Members are the future of DAR and Tennessee Daughters are proud of our young women!
