Junior League of Jackson (JLJ)
Grants to Jackson, Mississippi organizations to enhance the quality of life for local youth and children. Applications will be considered from organizations working to address the following community needs: children’s health, early literacy, and social development. Each Proposed Project must have a minimum of 5 JLJ volunteers to be considered.
The Junior League of Jackson endorses a Community Impact Model for the selection and evaluation of its community projects. This model requires the League to identify a small number of critical community needs, and to place its volunteers and project funds exclusively or primarily in those areas, in order to maximize the League’s effectiveness in improving the community. The League recently updated and streamlined its community impact areas, which will be used for selecting 2019-2020 year projects.
If your Proposed Project addresses one or more of the identified community needs, the Junior League looks forward to considering a partnership with your organization.
Early Literacy: JLJ is interested in improving school readiness.
Children's Health: JLJ is interested in improving knowledge of the importance of eating nutritional foods, improving accessibility to these foods, improving knowledge of the importance of being physically active, and promoting the development of skills to be physically active.
Social Development: JLJ is interested in encouraging a sense of respect for self/others, encouraging self-esteem/self-confidence, providing safe/healthy environments for the development of social/emotional health, and increasing access to activities that teach responsible decision making and positive life choices.
