Junior Membership

What is a Junior Member?

A Junior is a DAR member age 18 through 35 years of age. Once a Junior member surpasses her 36th birthday, she may continue to page at state conference and Continental Congress until her 41st birthday. While continuing to hold full DAR membership, she may serve as an officer or committee chair at the chapter, state, and national levels when qualified.

Juniors are encouraged to learn and to lead in support of DAR objectives. Juniors can attend meetings, serve on committees, subscribe to the DAR Magazine, and study the DAR Handbook to learn more about the DAR. All chapters around the world are encouraged to find ways to support the Junior Membership Committee by recruiting Juniors and engaging them in chapter activities and encouraging them in their DAR service.

The National Junior Membership Committee was established in 1937. The goals of the committee are:

  • to gain new Junior members;
  • to build a well-informed Junior membership;
  • to encourage active participation in all phases of DAR service;
  • and to support the National Junior Membership Committee's official fund-raising project - the Helen Pouch Memorial Fund.
