Departments Honorary Junior President’s Project
The Honorary Junior Presidents Project this year is Stiggy’s Dogs
Stiggy’s Dogs specializes in helping to write happy endings for rescue dogs and veterans.
Stiggy’s Dogs is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides our military veterans living with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury another method of healing through service and companion dogs. We seek to help heal the wounds of war, provide families with new beginnings and raise awareness about the potential of shelter dogs everywhere. We believe in rescued dogs and know from experience that many mixed breed and rescue dogs can make wonderful service dogs and provide a mutually beneficial relationship with a veteran living with PTSD and/or TBI.
By doing this, we are rescuing one to rescue another.

About the Juniors Program
Engaging the next generation to become members in the American Legion Auxiliary is the important purpose of the Junior Activities program.
Junior membership is open to girls from birth through age 17.
The Junior Activities program prepares girls under the age of 18 to become active adult members of the organization by providing positive volunteer experiences that instill the ideals of the Auxiliary. These girls develop leadership skills while having fun and hopefully becoming the future leaders of our organization.
Juniors are members of the Auxiliary who are organized as a committee of a unit. Juniors are not a separate Auxiliary organization. Junior members conduct their own meetings and perform their own special activities. Junior members plan their own community service projects, along with supporting projects sponsored by the Auxiliary and The American Legion Family.
Connecting with our Junior members and involving them in worthwhile activities that support our mission are the best ways to ensure the continuation of the Auxiliary for as long as there are veterans to serve.
Purpose Statement To interest eligible young women (under age 18) in adult Auxiliary membership through positive experiences of mission-based volunteer opportunities that instill the ideals of the organization.
