Why Job’s Daughters International?
There are dozens of ways that young women can now get involved in their local community, learn leadership skills, or give back. So why JDI?
Job’s Daughters International has been around for almost 100 years, and has helped thousands of young women internationally grow into strong, empowered adults who care about their communities, invest in their futures, and build strong support networks. With more and more women investing in their careers, Job’s Daughters International has a unique, time-tested approach that allows young girls an opportunity to learn skills that will help in their future career paths, while having fun. Many don’t even realize the skills they are being taught until much later in life!
There are three main focuses that JDI uses to partner with parents and guardians in raising the next generation of female leaders:
Job’s Daughters is a fun and safe environment for young girls to bloom into strong women.

Ensuring our Members’ Safety
We strive to provide an environment that supports the growth and safety of all members in Job’s Daughters. To help create this environment, adult volunteers will be provided with detailed training and pass a screening process to help ensure the safety of our youth.
Find out more information about how we actively do our part to provide the safest environment possible, here. If you are already a volunteer with Job’s Daughters, you can find more information by signing into your portal.
The purpose of the JDI Youth Protection Program is to provide an environment to support the growth and safety of the young women in Job’s Daughters. To help create this environment, adult volunteers will be provided with a detailed Certified Adult Volunteer (CAV) Training and pass a screening process to help ensure the safety of our youth.
Upcoming CAV Classes – All Virtual
CAV Training has moved to a full schedule of virtual training and eliminated in-person classes. This will allow flexibility for potential volunteers, no more waiting long periods of time or traveling long distances for a class. To ease this change we have deployed a new scheduler program where a class can be chosen based on the timing needs of the attendee. Each aspiring volunteer simply enrolls themselves directly into the class that makes sense for their schedule. We do recognize there may be a rare need to for an in-person class in the future and those will be handled on an exception basis.
The online class scheduler can be located on the Job’s Daughters International website under the Youth Protection tab or directly at https://jobsdaughtersint.corsizio.com. Our virtual trainers are loading future classes into the tool periodically so check back often.
YPP Training Changes – New 4-30-22
November 1st Update – As a reminder, all Certified Adult Volunteers need to complete the California Mandated Training for Volunteers. If you haven’t completed the training, please do so as soon as possible. Supreme will continue to accept the certificates of completion for the required California Mandated Training over the next few days. The training can be found online at https://mandatedreporterca.com/training/volunteers.
Once you have completed the training, be sure to save the completion certificate that you receive at the end of the course and email it to the JDI Supreme office at the specific address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Once you email the certificate, you will receive an acknowledgement email. If you do not receive the acknowledgement email, please contact the Supreme office.
Please read the important update from the Supreme Board of Trustees which is linked above and note “Any California CAV who has still not completed the mandatory reporting class under California AB 506 by November 15, 2022, would be at risk of having their CAV suspended”.
