Junior Leadership Program
The Junior Leadership Program was founded in 2012 as an expansion of the Wilton Woman’s Club commitment to community service.
The group is composed of WWC members and their middle and high school age daughters, working together to provide volunteer support to local non-profit organizations and human interest initiatives.
The mission and purpose of the program is for our daughters to learn more about community service, and give back to their community.
Each mother signs up to supervise the JLP members at one event.
Junior Leadership Program Upcoming Dates
In order to solidify a annual schedule for the JLP program, we have devised the following volunteer opportunities. We are hoping these become annual programs that the girls can look forward to and plan for each year. Please save these dates in your calendars and when possible work your schedules around these programs. Also, please note some of these programs are also open to ALL members even if you don't have a daughter to volunteer with.
