We’re Focused on What Matters Most Right Now in the Lehigh Valley
At the Junior League of the Lehigh Valley we live in the moment. To us, that means adjusting our focus according to our community’s most pressing needs. Our work is always evolving, and that keeps us on our toes, striving for progress, and preparing to take on whatever comes next.
Our current community goal is to leverage our membership and strategic partnerships to maximize the impact of the JLLV in the greater Lehigh Valley on educational disparity. We will achieve this by identifying and partnering with another nonprofit addressing educational disparity, engaging our membership in impactful community activities, and developing a process to collect clear feedback to better serve our community. Recently we have partnered with Lehigh Valley Reads, an organization that addresses educational disparity through promoting literacy and access to reading materials.
Our goal is to help Lehigh Valley women develop civic leadership skills through the work they do, then put those talents to work in the communities that need it. Our current focus of educational disparity gives women opportunities to grow, while positively impacting the communities where they live and work.
We’re Creating Fulfilling Leadership Opportunities Throughout the Lehigh Valley
The Junior League of the Lehigh Valley (JLLV) offers so much more than local volunteering opportunities! Our League of leaders creates real change by advancing social activism-focused projects that directly benefit the communities of the Lehigh Valley. By giving women the tools to lead, educating them about their communities’ needs, and helping them put their unique brand of creativity and skill to work, JLLV is making a big impact on the Lehigh Valley.
We’re Transforming the Lehigh Valley’s Communities By Challenging the Status Quo
No matter what we’re currently focusing on, the Junior League of the Lehigh Valley’s work centers around improving our local communities through effective action and leadership. We have identified educational disparity as the most pressing issue in our community right now, and we are helping local women take action to resolve it. So far this year, we have partnered with a nonprofit that serves the Lehigh Valley in educational disparity, developed programs with community partners to address the needs of the community and continued supporting future generations of women leaders through our Scholarship. We believe that these impactful actions have the power to bring us closer to our goal of leveraging our membership and strategic partnerships to maximize the impact of the JLLV in the greater Lehigh Valley on educational disparity.
