The Junior Medallion Program supports young women in their desire to become useful volunteers while making the experience enjoyable from June of their eighth-grade year through November of their senior year. St. Lucy’s Auxiliary does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color or creed.

The Registration process for the Junior Medallion Program officially begins on May 1st of a potential candidate’s eighth-grade year.
