Any woman 18 to 35 years old is considered a Junior. These women hold full DAR membership, and may serve as an officer and chairman at the national, state, and chapter levels. Junior Members attend meetings, volunteer to serve on committees, and gain valuable leadership experience.

The National Junior Membership Committee was established in 1937. The goals of the committee are:
The Helen Pouch Memorial Fund
The Helen Pouch Memorial Fund was authorized in 1938 and finances projects chosen by the Junior Membership Committee.
It raises funds to provide scholarships, medical aid, and general financial assistance to Kate Duncan Smith DAR School, Berry College, Hillside School, Crossnore School, Hindman Settlement School, our HPMF National Project, and our Classroom Grants Program.
Raising funds for these commitments are through a combined effort by Juniors through their fundraising projects, including but not limited to the Junior Shoppe, Junior Doll, and by individuals who make donations directly to the Fund.
Golden Kangaroo Award
At the state level, FSSDAR Junior Membership Golden Kangaroo Award recognizes chapter involvement with the Junior Members.
The Sallie Harrison Chapter has many active Junior Members who are well supported within the chapter. The Chapter has achieved the highest level awarded, Golden Kangaroo, for the past eight years. Our chapter Junior Members hold many leadership positions at the chapter, state and national levels.
Active Junior Members!
Junior members contribute their service to our community and our organization, and the chapter also strongly supports Junior members as leaders. Currently, Junior members are serving as chapter Regent and Treasurer.
DAR Junior social events take place quarterly throughout Florida, fostering Junior sisterhood and camaraderie.
Service to the State and National Societies
Many chapter Junior members serve as Pages at state and national DAR events, which is another great way to connect with other Junior members. Pages provide a wide range of logistical assistance and ensure DAR events run smoothly. At the last several FSSDAR state events, the Sallie Harrison Chapter has won the "White Glove Award" for having the most pages serving, out of all the Florida chapters

The Sallie Harrison Chapter was honored to be represented by six of our Junior Members, who served as pages at the 115th State Conference of the Florida State Society in March 2017. As pages, they supported the conferences activities and events through setting up the meeting, lunches, and working in the Junior Shop.
Chapter Outstanding Junior
Each year, our chapter recognizes our Outstanding Junior. This is a way to honor young women who have truly promoted the aims and purposes of the National Society, as well as participated in community activities. We are proud of our 2020-2021 Outstanding Junior, Amanda Hoffman.
