Jr. Junior League
It’s never too early to teach your kids how to give back! The NYJL’s Jr. Junior League (JJL) committee not only gives children the opportunity to do volunteer work, but also provides direct exposure of our work to underserved youth in the community. Through JJL, volunteers spend meaningful and enjoyable time with their children carrying out philanthropic activities.
We can’t wait to see you at an upcoming JJL event! For more information about JJL, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please check back soon for spring 2020 events!
During the fall, the Jr. Junior League participated in the following volunteer opportunities:
Mount Sinai Pajama Project: Bring joy to families in the neonatal intensive care unit at Mount Sinai. After an informative orientation, children will decorate cards and stuff gift bags to be delivered to families in the NICU. Light snacks will be provided for the children.
St. James’ Dinner Service: Help set up St. James’ Friday Night Dinner Service, a program that provides hearty meals each week to more than 90 guests experiencing homelessness and food insecurity. Activities include setting tables, crafting centerpieces, decorating menus, and sorting toiletries for the guests who will attend dinner that evening.
Get Involved, Volunteer Early Events (GIVE Events)
The JJL hosts Get Involved, Volunteer Early Events (GIVE Events) to teach principles of philanthropy and promote family volunteerism to preschool and elementary aged New York City children. GIVE Events are designed to be educational, dynamic, and engaging. Children learn about philanthropy, develop their philanthropic interests, and participate in different types of volunteer activities. Additionally, the events provide parents and their children with meaningful opportunities to do philanthropic work together. The JJL co-hosts GIVE Events with NYJL committees, NYJL community partners, and outside community partners. All GIVE Events are free of charge.
