About JA

We are Junior Auxiliary of Hot Springs!

Junior Auxiliary represents a serious endeavor on the part of women to be active and constructive participants in the communities in which they live and to assume responsible leadership in meeting community needs. It provides the members with the opportunity to serve and to be a vital part of the community.

The particular objectives of the Association are to unite in one body all Junior Auxiliary Chapters and members to promote National and individual Chapter purposes; to encourage members to render charitable services which are beneficial to the general public, with particular emphasis on children; to cooperate with other organizations performing similar services.

The work unit of the Junior Auxiliary Chapter is the project. A project is a planned undertaking in the health, recreational, welfare, civic, cultural or educational field for which the Auxiliary has some part of financial or administrative responsibility. All projects undertaken by the Chapter must be voted upon by the Chapter membership.

The work unit of the Junior Auxiliary Chapter member is the hour. While the real impact of service cannot be measured by counting hours, for internal purpose hours are reported in the following categories:

  • 1. Administration: Hours worked to organize, administer and operate Junior Auxiliary both locally and nationally.
  • 2. Education: Hours obtained in attending chapter meetings, area meetings and the annual meeting; provisional training; seminars and programs which enhance volunteer skills and effectiveness.
  • 3. Finance: Hours worked to raise funds to cover Chapter and project expenses.
  • 4. Service: Hours given to serve others in the community. Service includes welfare, community, cultural and other activities.
