The Valley of the Sun Active 20-30 Club is part of a national fundraising organization, Active 20-30 International , which serves local children through hands-on work and fundraising. We are one of four Active 20-30 Clubs in the Phoenix metropolitan area, and the only one that admits women to its membership.
-How many members are there?
We have approximately 75 members between the ages of 21 and 39.
-How do I become a member?
We hold one membership drive each year in August. During the membership drive, prospective members are invited to attend meet-and-greet activities, to learn more about the organization. To formally apply, a written application is required, followed by an in-person interview.
-What are the time commitments?
We ask that all members attend 60% of the meetings in a quarter, standing committee meetings as scheduled, and fully participate prior to and on the day of our fundraising events. We also require that members participate in a Florence Crittenton event at least once a quarter. General meetings generally last 1-1.5 hours. Formal meetings sometimes last longer if we have a guest speaker. Standing committee meetings may last longer depending on committee goals.
-What are the financial commitments?
Our monthly dues are paid in quarterly installments of $80. Our national dues are $100 per year, paid in July. National dues are prorated if needed for new members. All members are expected to raise a minimum amount in fundraising for Valley Kids Foundation beneficiaries.
-How often does VOS meet?
We meet on the 2nd Tuesday of each month for our General Meeting and on the 3rd Tuesday of each month for our volunteer Hands on Events. Meeting locations may change and additional meetings (Executive or standing committee meetings) may be scheduled.
-Does VOS 20-30 support other Active 20-30 Clubs?
Absolutely! We have terrific relationships with all three Valley men’s Active 20-30 Clubs. We often volunteer and attend their events, donate money towards their charities, and offer names of potential new members for their clubs. Many members of the men’s clubs participate in our fundraising events as well.
-Does VOS 20-30 have social events with other Active 20-30 clubs?
Yes. We attend happy hours, mixers and holiday parties with the other clubs. Our Social Chairperson coordinates with the other clubs on arranging these.
