The Junior League of Los Angeles empowers our members to improve access to resources for Los Angeles area transition-age foster youth and underserved students seeking higher education.
The Junior League of Los Angeles impacts the Los Angeles community with its broad scope of volunteer support providing over 60,000 volunteer hours in the last year through its many projects and programs. The focus areas of the Junior League of Los Angeles are:
- Self-Esteem and Empowerment of Transition-Aged Foster Youth
- Educational Opportunities for Unserved Students Seeking Higher Education
The Junior League of Los Angeles is committed to training its members to be effective and efficient volunteers and advocates by providing them with invaluable learning opportunities, ranging from leadership and organizational development training to community program instruction to nonprofit fundraising skills. Through Junior League of Los Angeles’ unique programs and projects, members learn how to not only manage and train volunteers, but also how to collaborate with community agencies to maximize a volunteer’s impact and thus aid a greater number of underserved women and children in Los Angeles.
Further, Junior League of Los Angeles’ members use this training to go on to serve on the boards of nonprofit agencies and commissions, advocate on issues of public policy, and organize model community programs that address need areas to build better communities.
