What is Job’s Daughters?
Job’s Daughters International was founded in 1920 for the purpose of giving girls a place to grow, lead, and make a difference in their communities.
Job’s Daughters run their meetings and plan their activities, participate in their communities and build leadership skills. You will be asked to take an office in the group, such as the Treasurer—who keeps track of our money, or a Custodian—who sets up the meeting room.
The girls get lots of support and encouragement; learning public speaking, learning organizational skills; gaining leadership opportunities and participating in community service. Girls ages 10–19 are able to join Job’s Daughters, and girls younger can join as a “Jobie to Bee”.
Jobies is a fun nickname for Job’s Daughters. We have girls all over the United States and Canada, Australia, the Philippines, and Brazil. Job’s Daughters has been in Canada since 1931!
We teach acceptance – no matter what you look like, what your ethnic or social background is – no matter where you live or what kind of clothes you wear, no matter where you go to school or how “popular” you are. All members of Job’s Daughters are equal. No member is more “important” than any other member. We are an equal opportunity organization, which does not discriminate on the basis of race, colour, national origin, disability or sexual orientation. We recognize that respecting the diversity of individuals, their backgrounds, and various viewpoints can strengthen and grow our organization.
For over 90 years, Job’s Daughters has been actively promoting friendship and service. We take our name from the Book of Job, and in particular to a reference in the 42nd Chapter that says, “And in all the land were no women found so fair as the Daughters of Job.” Job’s Daughters only requires a belief in a higher power. While Job’s Daughters is religious in nature, it is not a religion (or cult) nor is it a substitute for religion.
So what are you waiting for? Job’s Daughters is your place to belong!
