Junior Auxiliary Prayer
Send us, O God, as Thy messengers to the hearts without a home, to the lives without love, to the crowds without a guide. Send us to the children whom none have blessed, to the famished whom none have visited, to the fallen whom none have lifted, to the bereaved whom none have comforted.
Kindle Thy flame on the alters of our hearts, that others may be warmed thereby; cause Thy light to shine in our souls that others may see the way; keep our sympathies and insight ready, our wills keen, our hands quick to help others in their need.
Grant us clear vision, true judgment, with great daring as we seek to right the wrong, and so endow us with cheerful love that we may minister to the suffering and forlorn even as Thou wouldst. May the blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit rest upon us and upon all our work. May He give us light to guide us, courage to support us, and love to unite us now and forever more.
Making Hours "Count"
Education: You are required to have 12 Education Hours per year. Six of those must be from attending Chapter Meetings.
If you are learning something, these hours are considered Education. Annual, Regional, & Chapter meetings are all counted as Education hours.
Chapter sponsored seminars
AEC (Annual Education Conference)
Provisional Training Meetings (for Provisionals only)
Administrative: There is no Administrative Hour requirement.
If you are helping "run" our Chapter, these hours are considered Administrative. Board meetings, committee meetings, project research and/or evaluation are all counted as Administrative hours.
Attending board or committee meetings
Making phone calls
Hanging signs for events
Delivering letters/information to schools
Getting items/props out of storage
Getting event volunteers
Service: You are required to have 24 Service Hours per year. Three of those must be Child Welfare. These hours must also include all Exceptional Education projects.
If you are serving others, these hours are considered Service. If you are working with children, these hours are considered as Service. For example, if you are stuffing registration bags for the Kids' Fun Run, preparing cupcakes for a Bear Bucks party, or working in the classroom with Exceptional Education, these are all counted as Service hours. The key is that you're working directly with or to benefit the children. Planning a project is not service, but preparing items for the children as part of a project is considered service.
