Community Impact

For more than a century the Junior League has been on the forefront of social reform, identifying problems and finding solutions in a collaborative way. The list of issues they’ve tackled is long and complicated: illiteracy, domestic violence, and youth in poverty just to name just a few.

Our approach is simple. Through hands-on training and formal learning opportunities we give women the skills they need to improve the quality of life in the communities they serve. JLH has selected breaking the cycle of poverty in youth as our current Community Impact focus area and we partner with organizations such as Tri County Community Action and Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Capital Region on unique programming each year.
