Who We are

  So, you might be wondering, what is a Junto?

 

  In 1727 The Junto was formed in Philadelphia by Benjamin Franklin for the purpose of mutual improvement. The group consisted of men from many different occupations and backgrounds but all included a sense of curiosity, love of truth, and a desire to improve themselves and the community.


 

  The club met regularly, first in a tavern and then a house to discuss moral, political, and scientific topics of the day. Their discussions were many times debated under the direction of a mediator and in the words of Franklin were “conducted in the sincere spirit of inquiry after truth, without fondness for dispute or desire of victory…” The Junto’s meetings were organized around questions that covered intellectual, personal, business, and community topics.


 

  The Killeen Junto Club works today to invoke the spirit of inquiry and encourage a fondness of truth enjoyed by Ben Franklin and his Junto companions. The Killeen Junto Club, like Franklin’s Junto, is an organization for mutual improvement.


  Through the exchange of knowledge and ideas the Killeen Junto Club means to contribute to individual intellectual and moral growth while effecting civic improvement for the betterment of our world.
