A feature that sets the Junior League apart from other not for profit community volunteer organizations is that a major focus of the League is training women to be leaders within our community. The Junior League of Kingston offers training in a variety of ways.
Our members learn meeting protocol, fund development, organizational skills and project planning and development by working on committees which provide services to the community. We also provide our members opportunities to attend International conferences which focus on leadership, communication skills and strategic planning.
Locally, we have provided training opportunities in a variety of areas. CPR certification and OSHA certification are two such examples. Members are also offered a wide range of classes or instruction on a multitude of topics. Recent programs have been Zumba, nutrition, knitting, and recreational-layout planning. Guest speakers also are invited to monthly General Membership meetings to speak on a variety of informative topics.
