Junior Medallion Program Information

The Junior Medallion Program supports young women in their desire to become useful volunteers while making the experience enjoyable from May 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.

Once a young lady is invited to join the Junior Medallion Program and completes the registration process, she will then be a Junior Medallion Candidate. If all requirements are fulfilled by hr senior year, she will be presented at the Medallion Ball in November. Only 130 young women will be accepted into the Junior Medallion Program each year.

With the guidance and encouragement of her sponsor, each year the Junior Medallion member is required to submit her volunteer hours to the Credentials Committee to ensure that she is fulfilling a minimum of 25 hours of service per year in order to attain the 150 required hours of service for presentation at the Ball. The Credentials Committee will contact the candidate when it is time to submit these hours.

Adult Membership Required

As stated above, please note that mothers or female guardians of Junior Medallion Candidates are required to become members and maintain membership in St. Lucy’s Auxiliary if their daughter is invited into the program. This membership must be maintained until the candidate is presented in her senior year.

Please visit the Membership Page to join. The annual dues are $50 and we are honored to have you as a member!
