Every year, Junior League of Annapolis partners with two strong community organizations or government entities that have, or would like to develop, a new project that can be developed in conjunction with, and supported by, JLA. The project must meet local community needs and should align with the JLA focus area of “Self-Sufficiency of Women and Children.”
Community Projects Underway
These one-time special projects are completed in a short period of time and meet a specific community need in Anne Arundel County that is in sync with JLA’s mission and community programs. JLA welcomes local community organizations to learn more and view the DIAD project application to submit a project idea anytime of the year! Applications will be reviewed by the JLA Community Outreach and Project Research (COPR) committee, and organizations will be notified if they have been selected. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions!
Read 2 Kids is a three-year JLA program partnering on multiple projects with Anne Arundel County Schools. The Read 2 Kids’s mission is to provide disadvantaged children with new books and to see every single one of them read, learn and succeed. Read 2 Kids makes new, high-quality books available to schools and programs serving children from low-income families.
The three-year partnership between Seeds 4 Success (S4S) and JLA currently has four programs: Eastport Girls Club, I Am a Reader, Parent Challenge, and The Alumnae and College Access Program, which will help prepare and empower 10th-12th grade Eastport Girls Club graduates to attend and successfully complete college.
