How Ben Franklin Junto Club Keeps On Giving To Posterity _A Success Model Hometown USA
Ben Franklin & Legacy Of Innovation --Junto Club
Intro: In late 1726, young Ben Franklin had returned to Philadelphia after his two years stay in England. In 1727, he had quit his old job as a printer and he and his partner now waited for the new press to arrive. It was during this period, Ben Franklin started his self-improvement and conversation club that later became known as the JUNTO.
There were 12 founding members, individuals, mostly like himself who were engaged in printing and allied trades. There were four questions that each initiate to the club had to answer before being admitted to the club. There was also a 24 point "guideline" that Ben Franklin offered as a guide to "conversations".
A number of "practical" practices we have today actually come down to us today, a legacy of the work of the Junto. For example, "Volunteer Fire Fighters" was first conceived and implemented by Junto members under leadership of Franklin. The first "subscription library" was founded. And an "academy" that eventually became today's University of Pennsylvania.
Discussions at the Junto events for example were to be conducted "without fondness for dispute or desire for victory". For more knowledge about Ben Franklin, two great books, both available at the public library are recommended. "Benjamin Franklin, An American Life" by Walter Isaacson, Simon & Schuster, 2003, and "Franklin, The Essential Founding Father" by James Srodes, Regenery Publishing Inc, 2002.

A Heritage Success Model Hometown USA
Here is a possible Preamble For A Junto Club Inspired at Your Hometown & Mine :
As a founding member of this free association (informal club), in pursuit of our art & science in community television production and also in life, we so commit to three guide principals as inspired by the legacy of a founding father of America at Innovation 1776. His name is Ben Franklin.
Here is our "commitment":
(1) Practice self-help
(2) Engage as possible in mutual-help among members & community to which each of us belong.
(3) Practice, support, and encourage community service
So we commit, founding members, as did Ben Franklin and his fellow twelve founding members of the Leather Apron Club (Junto) in the year 1727 when young Ben Franklin returned to Philadelphia from England. In the following year, he started his own printing business when the new printing press that he ordered finally arrived.
