One of the major goals of NAD is State Level Workshop on Empowerment of Deaf Youth creating awareness about the problems of the Deaf and hard of hearing young persons in India and creating more deaf young leaders to become the NAD Leaders. Toward this end, NAD is working with various Deaf organizations of India such to meet common goals.
NAD is imparting the State Level Workshop on Empowerment of Deaf Youth to empower the deaf young people and enable them to stand up for their rights. This helps the Deaf community to become more participative in social and legal matters that concern them as citizens.
State Level Workshop on Empowerment of Deaf Youth helps the Deaf Young Persons when they have to interact with Deaf Leaders & Govt. Officials and when they need to approach the authorities for needs. It helps remove their fear of authorities and helps them access and utilize their rights to life so they can live fearlessly as citizens.
