Community Engagement

Community Engagement: campaigns are important year-round, but specifically in the fall months, clubs are encouraged to promote the organization and recruit new members. These are also great ways to raise money for the club.

Ideas include:

  • Open game night
  • Working a local festival
  • Junior Civitan week
  • Host a school-wide dodgeball tournament to raise money for the Civitan International Research Center
  • Hold a dance for your school’s special needs department
  • Car washes or home window wash
  • Doughnut sales or Bake sales
  • Pancake supper (before ball games)
  • Fire extinguisher sales
  • Concession stands at sports events
  • Sell bird seed during winter season. Sell pecans during the holiday season.
  • Sponsor or participate in a school carnival such as dunking machines featuring Junior Civitans and faculty members, sponge throw, pie throw, tricycle races, water balloon throw, etc.
  • Sponsor a student-faculty basketball game
  • Sell a box of candy bars
  • Have a haunted house on Halloween
  • Raffle a donated prize
  • Paint faces at sporting events or carnivals

Does your club have a Community Engagement or Membership Recruitment project you think other Junior Civitan clubs would be able to carry out? Submit your club project for a chance to be featured on the Junior Civitan website.
