A lady named Mrs. Ethel T. Wead Mick created this group for girls in 1920—over 90 years ago! 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 the meeting room.We are girls who love to learn!
We will give you lots of support and encouragement; teaching public speaking, leadership and community service. Girls ages 10–19 are able to join Job’s Daughters, and girls younger can join as a “Jobie to Bee.”
Jobies, is a fun nickname for Job’s Daughters. The Bible verse that Jobies is based on is, “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). It teaches us that we should be dependable and honest.
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.
