Partnering with JLA
The Junior League of Atlanta, Inc. (JLA) partners with community agencies that reflect our mission, vision and values. Focused on improving the health, education and welfare of women and children, The JLA provides much-needed volunteer resources and funding, and serves as a catalyst for positive change through our partnerships.
Each year, the JLA invests thousands of volunteer hours to community agencies and programs that support empowering women and children to become self-sufficient. This year, the JLA will contribute more than 75,000 volunteer hours, valued at nearly $2 million dollars, along with $250,000 in grant funding to our community partners.
Community Placement and Outreach Partners
The JLA has hundreds of trained volunteers who each commit 50+ hours of direct volunteer service to certain partners that we consider to be our "community placements." The league also provides funding for special programs that our volunteers support through service at these organizations.
In addition, the league partners with community agencies in other creative ways through various outreach programs that include advocacy, drives for items such as children’s books and clothing, “done-in-a-day” projects, and providing league members the opportunity to serve as a member of our partners' Board of Directors.
