Junior League of Albuquerque
The Junior League of Albuquerque (JLA) is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. We envision a safe, healthy, and nurturing community for all.
Partnering with the Junior League of Albuquerque is partnering with a movement that has made vast differences in Albuquerque and New Mexico during the past 74 years. Our vision, through education and training, is to create and support a safe, healthy, and nurturing community. We reach out to women of all races, religions, and national origins who demonstrate an interest in and commitment to voluntarism. In 2009,the League approved a Five Year Campaign which ensures League volunteer activities and monetary donations will support community organizations working to end hunger.
The JLA has also joined New Mexico’s Collaboration to End Hunger. This movement continues during 2009-2010 with our community impact projects, Project Share, which feeds 5,000+ homeless and needy families per week and APS Title 1 Homeless Project which served over 3,500 students during the 2008-2009 school year. The project services include: outreach advocacy; after school tutoring; school supplies; clothing and uniforms; food, health and mental services, pre-graduation transition assessments, and assistance with various school fees.
