The Junior League of Columbia’s Junior Volunteers program promotes voluntarism among youth in the community. The goal of Junior Volunteers is to teach young people the importance of volunteering in the community and to better the lives of others as well as themselves. Junior Volunteers is a program created for girls in grades 7-12 who are interested in making a difference in and around Columbia.
After a successful year, the Junior Volunteers Committee is looking forward to the 2023–2024 League year. We have an AWESOME year planned with MORE hands-on projects, as well as fun events for the Junior Volunteers to attend.
All Junior Volunteers will receive a calendar with the year’s events and a certificate indicating completion of the program presented in May. Social activities and service projects will take place throughout the school year. Junior Volunteers will also have the opportunity to attend and be recognized at a General Membership Meeting.
We are excited about meeting our new Juniors Volunteers and look forward to a wonderful year ahead. We hope you will encourage a young lady you know to make volunteering a part of her life! You can never be too young to start volunteering while making new friends and working toward the goal to make a difference for others.
