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.
For the 2014-2015 year, our Community Partner was the Boys & Girls Club Learning Circles Program. In this 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.
For the 2015-2016 year, 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.
