Job’s Daughters is your place! A fun and exciting group of girls who love life and learning about our place in the world. A lady named Mrs. Ethel T. Wead Mick created this group for girls in 1920—over 90 years ago! We have girls all over the United States and Canada, as well as Australia, the Philippines, and Brazil. Worldwide, there are over 10,000 girls who belong to Job’s Daughters.
Mrs. Mick wanted the best for her daughters and their friends. She wanted them to feel important and to be in control of their work. Job’s Daughters today run their meetings and plan their activities. Adults help the girls with their ideas. You may be asked to take an office in the group, such as the Treasurer–who keeps up with our money, or a Custodian–who sets up and cleans up the meeting room.
We are girls who love to learn! Each girl who joins is given a little purple book called the Ritual which tells you all about the organization and the order of our meetings. We will give you lots of support, love and encouragement until you feel confident. Girls ages 10–19 are able to join Job’s Daughters.
By joining and being active in Job’s Daughters, you will learn leadership and have the chance to travel to meet and work with girls from around the world. You will go to swimming parties, dances, family picnics, sleepovers, mini-golf and much more!
Jobies, a fun nickname for Job’s Daughters, love to help the community! We raise money for the Hearing Impaired Kids Endowment (HIKE) each year. HIKE gives the money to help children with hearing aids and other equipment to help kids hear. Over $3 million has been raised and 2,260 hearing devices have been donated.
“And in all the land were no women found so fair as the Daughters of Job; and their Father gave them inheritance among their brethren” ( Job 42:15). This is the Bible verse that Jobies is based on and it teaches us that we should be dependable and honest.
We want you to join with us for fun, friendship, helping others, and the chance to learn more about life! You will be encouraged to be responsible and to participate in the social and family-friendly events and activities we plan. Fairness, honesty, being equal, and respect are the values of Job’s Daughters.
So what are you waiting for? Jobies is your place to belong!
