I am a Junior Civitan:
An aware citizen of today,
The standing promise of tomorrow.
I seek to meet the needs of our world,
To be progressive in a world of change
With compassion and understanding for
The values and traditions of the past.
I value the security of knowing
That wherever I am
I will always be within reach
Of a fellow Civitan.
I dedicate myself
To society and to my fellow man
With a commitment
To make the world a better place.
