2016-2018 GFWC Georgia Juniorette Clubs
Dinah Peevy, Coordinator
For over 30 years, GFWC Juniorettes have sharpened their leadership skills and put their idealism to work in projects that benefit children, families, and communities. Juniorette Clubs, whose members might be called Juniorettes, are composed of young women in junior or senior high school with an age range from 12 to 18 years. Juniorettes may have voting privileges at the GFWC Annual Convention, are eligible for awards, and have reporting responsibilities, just like Woman’s Clubs and Junior Woman’s Clubs. GFWC Georgia Juniorette clubs are sponsored by active GFWC Georgia General and Junior clubs and must have an adult advisor to serve as a liaison between the two clubs. It is recommended that a Juniorette club not be organized unless there is a regular GFWC advisor from a Woman’s Club or Junior Woman’s Club assigned to it. For further guidelines on organizing a GFWC Juniorette club, please refer to the GFWC Juniorette Handbook.
There are three Juniorette Clubs in the Georgia Federation of Women’s Clubs.
Juniorettes LEAD of Dawsonville
Tallulah Falls School Juniorettes
Junior Service Guild of Covington
GFWC Georgia Juniorettes are intelligent, energetic, enthusiastic and talented young adults committed to community service and to self development. This age group is concerned about the issues facing themselves, their families, their communities and the world in which they live. A Juniorette Club affords the perfect opportunity for them to learn and to grow, as well as, a place to put their ideas into action.
