As life sometimes goes, you may not make it to every scheduled Provisional Training, so please note that make up trainings will be offered throughout the year.

Your full commitment to JA will require that you complete Provisional Training from August-May, then serve as an Active Member for 5 years. Provisional Dues will be collected at the first provisional training in August and Active Yearly Dues  will be collected in April for each upcoming year. 

All throughout your training you will have opportunities and we will encourage that you participate in our existing service & finance projects. It is also a requirement that you attend 2/3 of the Monthly Chapter Meetings. We meet on the 1st Thursday of each month at 6pm at Origin Bank (across from Super 1 Foods). Through your training, chapter meetings, provisional project, and volunteering with existing projects, you will truly experience what being a part of JA is all about. The children and families you serve throughout this journey will make an incredible impact on your life! And to top it off, you will meet some amazing ladies who have the same passion and many of them will become your life long friends!!
