"Women working together to make
a difference."

Our Mission ....


The Amherst Junior Women's Club is an organization of Amherst, New Hampshire women who volunteer their time, energy, and talent to enhance the community.  The AJWC  mission is to focus efforts on civic needs, educational advancement, and those less fortunate.  AJWC's fundraising goals are achieved with the assistance and generosity of businesses, organizations, and individuals.



We pride ourselves on our civic and educational support throughout our community.  We dedicate our efforts to making life better, easier, and more fulfilling for those around us.


Our membership is proud to provide an annual scholarship to a graduating senior from Souhegan High School. 



The Amherst Junior Women's Club was founded in 1965 by Marion Sortevik and Carolyn Byrnes.   Today, membership is comprised of many women who strive for intellectual, social, and civic improvement.
