The Junior League of Atlanta, Inc. (JLA) partners with community agencies that reflect our mission, vision and values. Focused on supporting women and children at risk, The JLA provides much-needed volunteer resources and funding, and serves as a catalyst for positive change through our partnerships.

This year, the JLA will contribute more than 100,000 volunteer hours, valued at over $2 million dollars, along with $250,000 in grant funding to our community partners.
