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 jrjrleague@nyjl.org.

Children will learn what philanthropy is; how they can give their time, talents, and treasures; and how to talk about volunteerism with family and friends. Open to children of NYJL volunteers and the public. Registration is free of charge, but space is limited.

Junior Playground Improvement Project (PIP) Day 

Join the Jr. Junior League committee in lending a hand to transform a public park. Young volunteers are invited to help clean up, plant flowers, and play in the dirt! It’s a great opportunity to give back while having fun and when the renovation is complete, young volunteers will be thrilled to see what they have helped to create for other children in the community. A boxed lunch is provided for all volunteers afterward. This event is suitable for children ages 4 to 12 and is open to NYJL volunteers and the public. Registration is free of charge, but space is limited.

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.
