Junior Civitan is a community service organization for students. Junior Civitan members seek to meet the needs of our world and promote progress in a world of change. You can be a part of your local Junior Civitan club’s commitment to making a difference.

Junior Civitan’s purpose is to provide all of our members with personal and career development opportunities while improving schools and communities through volunteer service.
Established in 1975, Newburgh Junior Civitan is one of many Junior Civitan clubs.
Junior Civitan International (Est. 1927) has 10,000 members across 300 clubs.
There are Junior Civitan clubs in North America, Europe, Asia, and Africa.

Who can join?

Junior Civitan is open to all students. Parents of Civitans (members) are encouraged to help out as well and can join Newburgh Civitan.

What does it take to join?

Dues cover for the whole school year and must be payed before working in the haunted house, any projects or trips. Come to the meetings as much as you can and help out.

Why else should I join?

The club has movie nights, pizza parties, lock-ins, etc. You can also have fun on trips such as to Canada for the Dance-athon, Florida for Walk-N-Roll, and Paoli Peaks for helping with Special Olympics. You’ll also have the good feeling that you have helped many people.

More Information

The majority of Newburgh Civitan’s Jr. members come from Castle High School. Our members do volunteer work in our community including most of the local and area Special Olympics. The club works on many community projects throughout the year, the biggest one being the Zombie Farm. The money earned by our projects goes to funding research at The Civitan International Research Center which works to finding cures and treatments for mental disabilities and disorders.
