Schools represented include Bishop McCort, Cathedral Catholic Academy, Central Cambria, Greater Johnstown, Westmont, Richland, St. Benedict, Our Mother of Sorrows, Penn Cambria, Conemaugh Valley, North Star, and Ferndale. Members also include students who are home schooled and enrolled in Cyberschool. Students from across Cambria and Somerset counties are encouraged to consider participation on the Junior Board. Credit for voluntary service and academic letters of recommendation are often provided for these outstanding young people.

The purpose of the Junior Board is to create public awareness of the mission of Beginnings, Inc.; foster a spirit of volunteerism; learn skills necessary to manage or serve in voluntary leadership roles with non-profit organizations; and plan special events to support children and families served by Beginnings, Inc.

Through a variety of enjoyable awareness activities, Junior Board members serve as ambassadors for Beginnings, Inc. The Junior Board meets monthly to plan and execute activities including a summer car wash and fall bake sale.  The group helps Beginnings, Inc. with fundraising activities including the Used Book Sale, and assists with community events such as Cookies with Santa and a summer family picnic for families involved with Beginnings, Inc.'s services.

As part of their networking activities in the community, Junior Board members have visited a neonatal intensive care unit, the American Red Cross, The Johnstown Tribune-Democrat, City Hall, the police station and the Women's Help Center, as well as hosting guest speakers from local corporations, charitable and civic organizations.
