Junior CivitanHello Junior Civitans! My name is Sara Jago and I am the 2016-2017 Canadian West District's Junior Governor! Also this year, I am serving another term as the President for the Durham Junior Civitan Club. I cannot express how wonderful it is to collaborate with the amazing Junior Civitans here in Canada West! Our year is off to a fantastic start! The clubs have been busy planning, just as the District Board has! This year I am joined by five stupendous Juniors on the District Board as well as Susan Lundrigan, our District Chair. We are super excited for all the awesome events Junior Civitans have in store for the year! First up, World Junior Civitan Day on October 29th! I am overjoyed for the marvellous activities to be held by the Dundas Junior Civitans! Hope to see you there! Yours in Civitan, Sara Jago Governor, Junior Civitan Canadian West District
Reaching out to youth and working with today's young people is an on-going project for many Civitan clubs. Each year over 500,000 young people are involved in a Civitan sponsored activity from scouting to citizenship seminars. Civitan clubs take great pride in supporting young people through a multitude of projects and programs. Junior Civitan, the oldest and most successful program of Civitan International, is a community service organization for young people. Generally, Junior Civitans improve their schools and communities through service to others. Junior Civitan International has more than 500 clubs in North America, Europe, and Africa. These 17,000 members are committed to improving the world and the lives of those less fortunate. There are opportunities for fun and fellowship on all levels of Junior Civitan. Clubs hold regular meetings and projects in which members are in contact with each other.
Junior Civitans help others, particularly those with developmental disabilities, assist those less fortunate, and promote environmental and drug abuse awareness. Junior Civitans not only help other people, but they have a great time doing it. By working together, Junior Civitans learn the importance of teamwork and making friendships that will last a lifetime.
We are proud to have a Junior International Event in Canada. Click on the link for Sno-Do for more information.
