CONNIE: Hello Everyone!

The NAD YAP is the NAD Youth Ambassador Program.

We are looking for young leaders!

We are excited to announce that the YAP application is now available online. Curious!? Let me briefly explain.

The YAP application has six components:

First, what does it mean to be a Youth Ambassador of the NAD? This document is all about role expectations.

Second, Eligibility Requirements — contestants must meet all the requirements before entering the program.

The third component is the Timeline; the competition schedule that contestants will go through, including all five rounds.

Fourth is the Professional Code of Conduct; it lists guidelines on what is appropriate.

Fifth is the Application Information where you fill out different information about yourself on an online application.

And the sixth component is the Agreement Forms; there will be different forms to sign.

For further details, please visit our website.

(White text "www.nad.org/yap" appears in front of Connie).

Go ahead and apply!
