One of the cornerstones of Junior League of Louisville’s mission is developing effective volunteers through a variety of formal experiential training. A member’s placement on various committees is where she gains hands-on training. Our goal is to build on members’ strengths, and empower them to be more effective in their community, professional and personal endeavors.
Beginning in June 2020, our membership voted to focus on Youth Homelessness and Development within the Louisville Community. We have a strong 5-year plan for our impact in this area. Our plan was developed in conjunction with our main partners, Boys and Girls Haven, Coalition for the Homeless, Saint Vincent de Paul, and TrueUp. We are committed to assisting our partners to reduce the number of youth experiencing homelessness in our community. Much of our plan was formed with input from our partners who have received HUD funding toward the Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program (YHDP), a program with the intention of eliminating youth homelessness in Louisville.
The JLL has held three Little Black Dress Initiatives. We have been able to successfully raise awareness and stimulate discussion about some of the challenges our local youth are facing, including the impact poverty has on education and the impact of youth homeless on development.

Thank you to everyone who supported our third Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI) campaign! Advocates were able to raise both awareness regarding the challenges impacting homeless youth in our community and funds to support our current projects and partnerships in this issue space.
