Where We VolunteerAs an organization of active, involved, educated women, the Junior League of Washington feels strongly about using its resources where we can have the largest impact. Accordingly, we have chosen to devote significant time and energy to combat a great challenge our community faces, illiteracy.
Since 1999, the Junior League Of Washington has focused its energies on literacy related programs. The ability to read, write, and communicate affects far more than a person's knowledge of literary masterpieces. It changes their access to jobs, health care and transportation, and the way they raise their children.
The JLW has adopted a broad approach to solving the literacy challenges our community faces by addressing the issue from many angles: adult, child, and cultural.
We are honored to partner with over 23 organizations throughout the area. Please click below to find out where we are contributing in our community.
