Who Are Junior Clubwomen?
Junior clubwomen are dedicated to community improvement by enhancing the

adopted as a division of the Woman’s Club membership with Junior members
reporting separately on their activities.
Junior clubwomen gained separate status during the 1930-1932 GFWC
Florida Administration. For every District Director and CSP Chairman at
the Woman’s Club level, there is a Junior level counterpart. In addition
to their work in the six GFWC Community Service Program Areas and GFWC
Focus Areas, the GFWC Juniors also have Juniors’ Special Project. GFWC
Florida Juniors voted to create the slogan, “One Voice for Children” as

Women over 18 are always welcome to join a Woman’s Club, if a Junior
Club does not exist in her area.
