Junior Membership

Pages at the Texas DAR State Conference

Service Project at the Junior RetreatA Junior member is a DAR member between the ages of 18 and 35. Junior members hold full DAR membership and, when qualified, may serve as officers and chairs at the chapter, state and national levels. Our Texas Juniors are college students, professionals, and moms who serve their communities through DAR and many other organizations.

Juniors join DAR for a variety of reasons and have diverse interests. Working together for a common goal forges many friendships and offers endless opportunities for personal and professional growth. The Texas Society supports Junior membership by encouraging active participation within all levels of the organization. Juniors are the future of DAR, and Texas Daughters are proud of our Juniors!
