ORIGIN OF JUNTA
Where did JUNTA come from? In 1727, Benjamin Franklin, created the Junto, a group of “like-minded artisans and tradesmen who hoped to improve themselves while they improved their community.” The Junto was a discussion group for issues of the day; it subsequently gave rise to many organizations in Philadelphia.
In Fall 2013 a group of Antioch University Seattle students began a grant writing course as they began to envision professional projects, programs, and niches toward social justice. This group has since evolved into a larger mutual improvement support group.
JUNTA RETREATS & EVENTS
Fall 2014 marked the first JUNTA retreat on Orcas Island where students shared experience, challenged understanding and developed awareness of the group’s passions, aims, investments, and goals. Students of AUS Seattle are recruited through courses with Sara Beth Lohre and through peer relationships with JUNTA members. If you hear about JUNTA from anyone, come check us out!All AUS students and alumni are welcome!
JUNTA THE CLASS (LOS-4800)
JUNTA is also a class for undergraduate students, LOS-4800, registerable for 2-4 credits that meets the BA service-learning requirement. In this course students develop professional skills including leadership, community-building, event coordination, communication, and other skills (for use on your resume).
All Alumni (BA and MA and Doctoral students) and AUS students are invited to JUNTA retreats and events (with or without registering for JUNTA).
