The Junior League will give approximately $30,000 back to the community through our projects and Community Assistance Fund grants. More than 2,000 volunteer hours will be given this fiscal year to the community projects listed below, as well as the Women’s Leadership Conference and the Golf Classic:
The Student Success Program will partner JLA volunteers with teachers and staff to host monthly special events held at the San Jacinto Elementary with the goal of increasing parent involvement, as well as student participation and achievement. JLA volunteers will assist with planning, preparation, and implementing special events such as an evening of “Reading Under the Stars,” a spring school-wide art project, and STARR testing support. Our goal is to expand this program to more schools within our community.
JLA volunteers participate in the collection, organization, and distribution of Period Products for girls that do not have access to quality products. 1 in 4 females will miss school because they do not have access to period products. We strive to promote dignity, inclusivity, and empower all individuals to manage their menstrual health with confidence and without limitations.
The JLA Achieve committee facilitates hands-on workshops focused on professional and life skills for adolescent women aging out of foster care.
