Engaging the next generation to become members in the American Legion Auxiliary is the important purpose of the Junior Activities program. The mission is to interest eligible young women (under age 18) in adult Auxiliary membership through positive experiences of mission-based volunteer opportunities that instill the ideals of the organization.
The Junior Activities program prepares girls to become active adult members of the organization by providing positive volunteer experiences that instill the ideals of the Auxiliary. These girls develop leadership skills while having fun and hopefully becoming the future leaders of our organization.
Connecting with our Junior members and involving them in worthwhile activities that support our mission are the best ways to ensure the continuation of the Auxiliary for as long as there are veterans to serve.
Junior members volunteer with other girls in their age group in many engaging activities, such as learning about American flag etiquette, distributing poppies on Memorial Day, folding pockets flags for our deployed military, assisting with care packages to the troops, handwritten letters for Hero Packs, making and distributing holiday cards for our veterans and so much more.
Junior members of the American Legion Auxiliary may earn patches for prescribed activities in Americanism, Community Service, Education, Field Service, Leadership, Membership, National Security, Physical Fitness, Poppy, Technology and Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation.
Participating in the Patch Program is a terrific way to be involved in learning about the Auxiliary, volunteering in the community and serving our country’s veterans.
As a Junior member of the American Legion Auxiliary, you will participate in service projects that serve our military, veterans, and their families.
