The organization was supervised by the SA and was initially led by Adolf Lenk. The JDN collapsed after the failed putsch of 1923, were founded several local youth groups to fill the void, such as Lenk and Kurt Gruber's Grossdeutsche Jugendbewegung or Rossbach's Schilljugend, organized in both Austria and Germany.
