Community Projects


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

Community of Hope in Brooklyn Park:

JLA is partnering with the Anne Arundel County Partnership for Children, Youth and Families to establish a Community of
Hope in the Brooklyn Park community, an area which has the highest need and least resources in the county. Our objectives are to help develop and establish, together with community members, various initiatives which promote healthy and successful children and families.

Done In A Day (DIAD):

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 Done In A Day (DIAD) committee, and organizations will be notified if they have been selected. Please contact with any questions!

Seeds 4 Success:

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.
