Last month, The Junior League of Atlanta, Inc. (JLA) kicked off our 102nd year of community impact and service to the Atlanta community.
The JLA is made up of over 3,000 diverse women, committed to making a difference in the lives of women and children. Our members are part of a powerful organization that was created with the belief that each of us has an obligation to use our experiences, skills, talent, time and resources to improve the economic and societal conditions of others.
We continue to transform the Atlanta community because of our shared belief in our mission – to promote voluntarism, develop the potential of women and improve the community. Over the decades, we have continued to be intentional in addressing the needs of our community: from providing meals to children in Atlanta Public Schools, to advocating for stronger legislation for those affected by human trafficking/sexual exploitation to providing funding and awareness around generational poverty and early childhood education.
Our new year will be threaded with the launch of our new strategic plan, community impact, diversity, inclusivity and the continual enhancement of our membership. JLA’s legacy inspires us to roll up our sleeves, do the hard work and advocate for the voiceless by lending our voices to make change happen.
We are at the forefront being change agents and shaping the nonprofit landscape of this community. WE are the Junior League of Atlanta.
Join us, support us and cheer us on as we work to transform lives and build a better community.
