Southbury Juniorettes was established in 2004. Membership is open to any young woman, between the ages of 9 and 18, who are interested in helping others through volunteer service in cultural, educational and social areas. Members must be residents of Southbury or other surrounding communities that do not have a Juniorettes’ club.
Membership in Juniorettes gives a young woman the opportunity to work with community leaders, other volunteer organizations, and members of her own club. A young woman will learn to develop leadership skills by planning and carrying out projects in a variety of areas. Past Juniorettes have found that their volunteer experience has given them an edge when applying for jobs and to colleges. Most importantly membership in a Juniorette Club gives a young woman the opportunity to increase her self-esteem through helping others.
Juniorettes are proud to raise money and donate funds and needed goods to the Southbury Fuel Bank, Food Bank and Needy Fund as well as a variety of other local charities and community organizations. Each year, Juniorettes offer Crafts for Kids at the SWC’s annual Fall Fine Arts Festival and dress as elves and reindeer at the SWC’s Santa House, a fundraiser for the Region 15 Perpetual Fund.
Juniorettes generally meets the third Friday of the month. Meeting locations may vary. Annual dues are $20 along with an $15 fee for a membership t-shirt.
Juniorettes are advised and organized by two members of the Southbury Women’s Club and supported by their parents and guardians. For additional information, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
