Establishing a Junior Board
Are you curious about ways to engage your Club, Center or Region’s
older members in a unifying way? Or are you looking for different ways to
become involved within Pony Club?
Join National Youth Board members Geneva
Torsilieri and Alex Ambelang for a discussion of ways to promote a Junior Board
in your Club, Center or Region! Junior Boards are a fantastic way to get
members involved in making decisions, organizing events, and making the most of
your years in Pony Club. If these aspects of the Pony Club experience are ones
that you would like to explore, join us for this informational discussion!
