JLA continues to aid in keeping our organization accessible and enriching the lives of women and children in Anne Arundel County. We are excited to announce Community of Hope in the Brooklyn Park community of Anne Arundel County in affiliation with Anne Arundel County Partnership for Children, Youth and Families. This area has the highest need and least resources in the county. Our objectives are to help develop and establish, together with community members, programs and initiatives which promote healthy and successful children and families. Seeds 4 Success creates positive opportunities for the Eastport Girls Club youth living in public or subsidized housing communities. JLA volunteers meet with the Alumnae and College Access girls during after-school sessions and provide support to help them successfully apply to, prepare for and complete college. These sessions include SAT tutoring, college interview practice and time and management skills as well as networking and social skills. Done In A Day are 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.
