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.
