Grants and in-kind volunteer support to Alabama organizations for community projects that address critical local needs in eligible locations. Project focus areas are education and culture, economic security and financial stability, health and wellness, and safety and crisis. Eligible projects are conducted in Birmingham.
Through issue-based voluntarism, better partnerships can be built between the agencies served, better train members to become experts on the critical issues and provide more meaningful experiences for volunteers. The goal is to eradicate pressing issues within the community, create advocates and community trustees (trained JLB members) who are passionate about an issue, and make a positive impact on the community through systemic change.
Project proposals must request volunteers as well as funding. It is recommended that projects have at least four to six volunteers. Volunteers must be utilized in quality positions that will allow for the volunteer to give 35-40 hours of community service. Volunteer time commitment includes time for travel, training, preparation, direct service, and evaluation. In addition, opportunities are sought that provide JLB members with flexibility (e.g., weekdays, evenings, weekends).
