New Member Projects

“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 as part of their first year in JLLA, culminating in a one-day community service project. Junior League members focus on one of the League’s focus areas: education, with our Thrive Through Literacy events. New members will plan and execute events at non-profit community partner organizations in Spring of each year to distribute books to children in need while inspiring them about the adventure of reading and introducing them to education resources within their local communities.

If your non-profit organization is interested in partnering with the Junior League of Los Angeles to host a Thrive Through Literacy event at your location, or if your corporation or organization is interested in donating materials or sponsoring a project, please email
