Leadership Skills

Junior Civitan

Almonte Junior Civitan

Almonte Junior Civitan, chartered in 2008 by the Almonte Civitan Club, is a community service organization for students in grades 7-12. Members meet at the Civitan Hall on the second & fourth Wednesdays of the month at 7:30 pm.

Members are credited with Community Hours for their help with projects but more importantly learn to develop leadership skills and enjoy the fellowship of being part of a group that can make a difference in their community.

 

The Juniors have their own service projects including:

  • Helping residents play bingo at Fairview Manor
  • Supporting The Mills Group Home Dances
  • Taking part in Remembrance Day at the Cenotaph
  • Taking part in the Hub Angel Tree program
  • Helping Civitan with a Group Home Christmas Dinner
  • Doing coat check for the Violet Femmes Fundraiser
  • Collecting and weaving milk bags for Haiti

The Juniors run two major fundraisers with the support of the Almonte Civitan Club – the Annual Spaghetti Supper in February or March and the Mothers Day Breakfast. This allows them to support:

  • School fundraisers and special school projects
  • Remembrance Day Wreathe
  • Mississippi Mills Youth Center
  • LAWS
  • Hub Hospice
  • Big Brothers Big Sisters
  • Civitan International Research Centre
  • Almonte General Hospital
