Right now I can't think of any way I would change them other than to make them better known in the world. the organization is made up of women members who volunteer their time to help women and girls in their community. the strong organizational skills of our Federation keeps us focused and motivated to continue our service.

CROWN JEWEL CLUB
April 10, 2013

Crown Jewel Club is in so many ways such a simple program. A bunch of really neat caring people coming together to brighten and enhance the lives of 5th grade at-risk girls. Their methods seem so obvious to those of us who came from a more middle class background. Imagine a group of young girls getting so much out of a lesson on meeting new people, or how to set a table and use a knife & fork, or how to dream and make good choices not based on now, but on what you want for yourself in the future.

That is what Crown Jewel Club does and until you have experienced it for yourself, in the classroom, you can't imagine the difference it makes in their lives.

I'm so happy to say I have never regretted supporting this group financially or with my time, and believe me, when I was first told about CJC I didn't understand how at-risk girls could benefit from "a tea!" it is so much more than a tea!
