Girls Career Institute
(GCI) formally known as Girls Citizenship Institute was first started in 1947 and held at Montclair State Teachers college with 100 school girls attending.
Since 1948, GCI has been held at Douglass College, now Douglas Residential College Campus of Rutgers University.
New Jersey was the first state to develop this type of training program for girls and the chairman was invited to speak on the project at the General Federation convention in 1949.
Delegates, who have just completed their junior year of high school are sponsored by individual clubs. The event, held in June had attendance of over 400.
Clubwomen serve as 'house mothers' during the week and well known speakers from many fields are invited to speak throughout the days. Entertainment is provided and the girls get to 'live' in the dorms during their stay.
Flemington Woman's Club is sponsoring a Junior girl from the Hunterdon Central High School or Hunterdon Polytech. If you are interested in applying, please contact us via email.
