It was a meeting between Franklin and 12 of his most respected peers who all shared a spirit of inquiry, a desire to improve themselves, their community and to help others.
From this club for mutual improvement came groundbreaking concepts such as the first public library, the first post office, volunteer firefighting, the first public hospital, and the University of Pennsylvania.
Junto Global first began in 2010 after a few of us had graduated from college. We realized we lacked a place for us to learn, authentically connect, and continue our development. There was no structure in place to help us unearth our passions and pursue our dreams. Junto began in 1727 as –and still is today– a place to meet with others who share a spirit of inquiry, a desire to improve themselves, the community, and to help others. In this way we all become stakeholders in each other.
What started out as a small group has now become a fast-growing community of peer groups rooted in a common set of values and meeting for a shared purpose: to connect, learn and realize our highest potential.
