What We Do
The NAJA provides support, resources and specialized training to its local Junior Auxiliary Chapters so they may better serve their communities.
Caring Hearts. Helping Hands. Changing Lives.
Junior Auxiliary Projects
The work unit of a Junior Auxiliary Chapter is a Project. A Project is a planned undertaking where the Chapter has some part of financial or administrative responsibility in the Child Welfare, Health, Recreation, Culture, or Education fields.
The Chapter Project is generally initiated with the idea that, after having been successfully established and operated, an appropriate community group will assume responsibility for its continuance. If an essential service is being provided, then the project should be continued by the Chapter.
The NAJA Foundation seeks to provide secure and long-term funding to enhance the mission of NAJA, and thereby optimize the community service of NAJA Chapters, both now and for the future.
Since 1962, the NAJA Graduate Scholarship Program has awarded more than 579 grants totaling over $1.4 million for graduate studies in fields which address the special needs of children and youth.
