Our mission is to provide free books to Louisville children in an effort to foster a love of reading and prepare them for kindergarten. We believe that by improving early education in our community, we can contribute to the lifelong success of Jefferson County kids.
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.
JLL currently focuses on education as a community issue. We are impacting education in the Louisville community through a variety of dynamic projects including Little Libraries (in partnership with Metro United Way), Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library (in partnership with WAVE3), Maryhurst, and Boys’ and Girl’s Haven.
The 2018 Board Members above with help from our communications team executed our first Little Black Dress Initiative Fundraiser last fall. We highlighted how poverty impacts children and education right here in Louisville, while raising money to support the JLL and the programs that assist in overcoming it. Save the date for our 2020 LBDI Week, February 24 – 28.
