Kimberly Juniors Programs

Kimberly Juniors provides young ladies of high school age the skills needed to function successfully in modern society and gracefully involve themselves in the community.

Our core curriculum focuses on:

  • Manners and Deportment
  • Informed Citizenship
  • Public Speaking
  • Parliamentary Procedure
  • Drama and Dance

Members develop the skills necessary for endeavors in:

  • College Preparation
  • Panhellenic Organizations
  • Business Leadership
  • Community Involvement
  • Social Affairs

While a young lady may join as late as the start of her junior year in high school, the core curriculum is a four-year training program.

The program corresponds to the traditional high school year, beginning in August and concluding in May. There are 23 regular meetings each year, held from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Saturdays during the school year. Meetings take place at the Contemporary Club or at a designated alternative site.

Note: Due to restrictions related to COVID-19, the 2020 – 2021 year begins in September.

Senior Year and Senior Presentation

During senior year, members have the opportunity to serve as elected officers. The officers preside over the meetings under the guidance of the Kimberly Juniors Advisors. A Board of Trustees directs the entire organization.

The culmination of the program is Senior Presentation. Presentation is an elegant evening in which each graduating senior is formally presented to adult society. This special event, while optional, allows the young lady to showcase her accomplishments among the warm circle of family and friends. It is truly the highlight of her Kimberly Juniors experience.
