A junior is a DAR member, 18-35, who is a vital supporting member of her chapter. As students, professionals, mothers, daughters, and spouses, Juniors provide vision, energy and creativity to the Society’s goal of service to God, Home, and Country.
The Society’s Junior Members support the Helen Pouch Memorial Fund. Since its founding in 1938, this fund has provided more than two million dollars in financial assistance for DAR Schools – Kate Duncan Smith, Tamassee, the Crossnore School and Children’s Home, Hillside, Hindman Settlement, and Berry College. The fund also provides annual classroom grants of $500 each to at least one K-12 classroom in each state and the District of Columbia. In the past, the Fund has also financed National Projects, such as Operation Freedom, which raises and trains service dogs for physically and emotionally wounded veterans, and Schools Count, which provides school supplies to our nation’s schools impacted by disasters.
If you are interested in serving your community, connecting to ancestors and family members who are or were DAR members, or working with women with similar ideals, please submit a DAR application inquiry from the Membership page.

Read below about how DAR has impacted Alex's life.
"The DAR holds a very special place in my heart because of my great-great-grandmother, Eugenia Hamilton Goode Morgan. She served as Regent of the Atlanta chapter of NSDAR from 1910-1911. Eugenia was a leader, activist, philanthropist, and dedicated servant of Christ. She was the person that I aspire to be every single day. After learning all of the wonderful things she had done to serve her country, I was not only honored to be descended from her, but also inspired. You see, Eugenia understood that she was descended from incredible people herself, people who were also leaders, activists, philanthropists, and dedicated servants of Christ. She used the foundation that her ancestors laid for her to build up a community with grace, encouragement, and dedication. Her leadership cultivated strength in others and joy throughout her sphere of influence. She served God, her home, and her country selflessly and persistently. As I get older, I am beginning to grasp what she once understood. Because of what I saw in her, I caught a glimpse of what she saw in our patriots. Now I have a foundation laid for me and a conviction to serve God, home, and country in the same way that Eugenia did. Little did I know, that this conviction would be the beginning of a sweet, joyful journey. I am very newly an active member of the DAR, but I have already learned so much. I have the most phenomenal outlet to love people well and be loved in return. DAR is not just a lineage society, but a sisterhood of women who love our country and serving those in it. I have women that I can laugh with, serve alongside, and journey through life with. What a blessing it is to be a descendant of brave warriors who love our country, and what a blessing it will be to raise more up for the generations to come!"
