The Junior League of Charlottesville (JLC) offers a Community Partner program that consists of local non-profit agencies that have been selected as targeted recipients of the League's volunteer hours and funds during a sustained, multi-year collaborative interaction. These partnerships are created and cultivated in an effort to maximize the effectiveness of both organizations' outreach work within the community.
Beginning in 2014, we have had the honor of working with the Boys & Girls Club Learning Circles Program. In this Community Partners program, League members mentor a group of pre-teen girls 8-12 years old, helping build self-esteem and providing positive female role models. Members also develop and assist with program activities.
In 2015, we welcomed the Ronald McDonald House Charlottesville (RMHC) Library. League members will be helping RMHC build and staff their house library, providing literacy and a safe place for family members to meet in their time of need.
