New Member Projects - Children's Literacy

Literacy unlocks the door to learning throughout life, is essential to development and health, and opens the way for democratic participation and active citizenship. - Kofi Annan, former Secretary General of the United Nations 

New members of the Junior League of Los Angeles undertake a nine-month volunteer training program culminating in a one-day community service project. Junior League members focus on one of the League’s focus areas: education and literacy with our Thrive Through Literacy events. New members will plan and execute events at nonprofit community partner organizations in March 2017 to distribute books to children in need while inspiring them about the adventure of reading and introducing them to literacy resources within their local communities.

If your nonprofit organization is interested in partnering with the Junior League of Los Angeles to host a literacy event at your location on a Saturday during March 2017, or if your corporation or organization is interested in donating materials or otherwise sponsoring a project, please email newmembers@jlla.org.
