Becoming a Junior League of Atlanta Partner
The Junior League of Atlanta (JLA) invites all eligible agencies to submit an application for partnership with the JLA. The Junior League of Atlanta looks for agency programs that will develop the potential of our women volunteers and empower them to promote positive community change in the areas of health, education and welfare of women and children. The Junior League of Atlanta looks for these programs to have a measurable impact on your agency and the population(s) you serve.
Our primary service area is the City of Atlanta; although the Metropolitan Atlanta area is our secondary service area, provided these agencies also serve City of Atlanta citizens.
To discover how your organization and the Junior League of Atlanta can work together, please attend our annual Community Breakfast on Tuesday, May 7, 2013 from 8:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Held at the JLA Headquarters, the Community Breakfast offers an overview of the Junior League of Atlanta’s mission, Community Partnership and Placement opportunities, the application process, and breakout sessions on topics such as social media and fundraising.
