Job's Daughters is an organization of young women between the ages of 10 and 20 who are related to a Master Mason, and share a common bond.  We have members in the United States, Canada, Australia, Brazil, and the Philippines We have fun together at activities such as swimming parties, dances, family picnics, slumber parties, miniature golf, marching in parades, travel . . . well, you get the picture. By working closely together, you will make new friends that will last a lifetime. We also help others performing service projects. Throughout the year, we perform service projects to help our community, the less fortunate, and other charities. We actively support the Hearing Impaired Kids Endowment (H.I.K.E.) Fund, which purchases hearing assistive devices for hearing impaired children. This organization was founded by Mrs. Emma Tedrick, a PBG, PGG, and PSG from our bethel. We learn leadership through these activities. By holding various offices in Job's Daughters, you will gain valuable leadership experience, be a part of a team, and learn democratic principles. Job's Daughters can qualify for various scholarships that are offered on a state-wide and a national level. All Job's Daughters are members of a local chapter called a Bethel. Members of a Bethel elect their own officers, decide their own activities, and plan their own events.In short, the International Order of Job's Daughters offers the qualities that today's young women want and need from organizations that earn their commitment, fun, friendship, helping others, and the chance to learn organizational and leadership skills.
