The Junior League of Atlanta, Inc. (JLA) partners with community agencies that reflect our mission, vision and values. The efforts of JLA focus on supporting women and children at risk, providing much-needed volunteer resources and funding, and serving 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. Despite the challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, JLA members volunteered for more than 50,000 hours with 46 local partners, virtually and in person, a value of $1.5 million to the metropolitan Atlanta community.
In 2012, The Junior League of Atlanta, Inc. committed to rolling out a new community engagement model known as Issue-Based Community Impact (IBCI), allowing efforts to have a greater reach and impact in the community. The IBCI model orients strategic tactics of direct service, advocacy and public education/awareness, strategic grant-making, capacity building, training, and coalition building towards achieving specific, measurable impact in the community.
Under the IBCI model, JLA is working to make lasting impact in the following areas:
