I agree with Curt, Jobs Daughters is an excellent organization. You do need to be a relative of a Mason to join or at least that was the requirement needed when I joined. Before I joined I was a shy individual who rarely spoke in public. Jobs Daughters has positions for each of the girls who memorize their job descriptions. These are recited outloud during the meetings. My experience with Jobs taught me to be a leader, be able to speak in public places, work with the community, make life-long friendships and essentially have a lot of fun along the way. I would highly recommend this organization.

I agree with the two above folks who made comments. Job's Daughters bring the character of the young lady out. She learns skills that she will be able to use her entire life. I participated with my daughter Caitlin, who was able to find interests that she now pursues. She grew into a confident young lady. Her public speaking improved and she has gone to Africa to help those in need. She most likely is friends with A Past Honored Queen above and has other Job's Daughters friends around the country. Those looking for a worthy organization that has lots of fun, teaches organization, honesty and integrity through action will consider Job's Daughters.

My daughter is a member of Pleasanton Job's Daughters. We would love to have your daughters join us on the 2nd and 4th Monday of each month. JDI is an organization for girls between the ages of 10 and 20 years old who have a Masonic relationship. JDI teaches girls love of country, love of family and friends, respect for those in their community, and service to others. As well, the girls learn about public speaking, team work and leadership skills. We also have plenty of fun activities planned (Rock Climbing, Horseback Riding, a trip to San Francisco, Volleyball, sleep-overs, dances)
We'd also like to invite your younger girls to join us at the same time as the regular Bethel meeting for the JD2B club. JD2B is for those girls who arenít yet 10 but would like to participate in some of our Jobie activities.

Homerr, thanks for the reply, but I was looking for a less pompous and a more community oriented response.
If I want to learn about neighbors, members of the community, etc. I'd like to ask or learn from them directly and let them define themselves in person or in a community forum rather than ignorantly google or wikipedia an answer (that might not even apply to the locals) about folks in my own town. I'd like to think we are better than that.
Job's Daughters International sounds like a great program. Posters above have mentioned that this is not open to all members of the community but only to persons associated with the Masons. This is fine but it brings up the question I posted above: What is a Mason or Masonic Relationship as others posted above?
In this open forum, I believe my question is respectful and appropriate.
