One Time Projects

Done In A Day (DIAD)

The Junior League of Los Angeles' Done in a Day Committee plans and organizes opportunities for our members to assist nonprofit community agencies with projects that require significant volunteer support and can be completed within a three- to six-hour period. These events address specific needs of the community within the Junior League of Los Angeles’ mission.  Done in a Days allow our members to support a variety of community agencies and realize an immediate impact on the Los Angeles community.  

Past events include, but are not limited to:

  • Managing a craft booth for foster youth at the Peace4Kids Holiday event, serving over 300 foster youth ages seven through twelve
  • Hosting a publication party to celebrate students in 826LA’s journalism workshop
  • Partnering with Jumpstart for its annual Read for the Record event, at which Junior League of Los Angeles volunteers read to and do literacy-related activities with students
  • Assist Uplift Family Services at Hollygrove with its Read Across America day event, including reading books in English and Spanish to students
  • Helping college-aged foster youth prepare and draft resumes in partnership with Helping Young People Excel (HYPE)
  • Organizing self-esteem and empowerment events at Downtown Women's Center and Uplift Family Services at Hollygrove
  • Hosting a Halloween Party for the children of the Violence Intervention Program at LAC+USC Medical Center
  • Hosting a carnival for the children at Children's Hospital Los Angeles and St. Joseph's Center
  • Providing career panel speakers and running college-focused break out sessions at United Friends of the Children’s College & Career Day for foster youth

Partnering with Children’s Institute, Inc. to plan and execute a literacy fair, including reading books to and doing crafts with children ages four through nine

These events are planned and executed by the DIAD Committee and fill a need that our community partners could not have met without our assistance.

If your nonprofit agency has a special need that could be addressed as a Done In A Day project, please email: diad@jlla.org with a description of your need and appropriate contact information.  (Please note that Junior League of Los Angeles cannot support events that have already been planned and are solely in need of volunteers.  In addition, JLLA cannot provide volunteers for a fundraiser of another non-profit agency.)
