You can find us tutoring a child, mentoring parents at a daycare center for homeless children, serving on community boards, or delivering life skills seminars to community members in recovery programs.

COMMUNITY IMPACT

NATIONAL BOOK FESTIVAL

For 13 consecutive years, the Junior League of Washington has joined the Library of Congress to promote literacy at the National Book Festival. In 2014, more than 340 trained volunteers helped as the festival moved to the Washington Convention Center and expanded its events to include cooking demonstrations, film screenings and more.

RESOLUTION READ

Today, by design, RESOLUTION READ is more than just giving out books. JLW volunteers also give individual attention to children when selecting books, help young children write their name on their new books, read aloud to children, and offer a host of other activities to foster a passion for books and reading in children of all ages – a Resolution [to] Read among children where it otherwise might not exist.
