Jr. Junior League
GET INVOLVED, VOLUNTEER EARLY EVENTS (GIVE EVENTS)
It’s never too early to teach your kids how to give back!
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.
**Due to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation, all Jr. Junior League activities will be virtual until further notice.**
These events are open to NYJL members and the public (subject to pre-screening questions).
