Message from the President
Welcome to the Junior League of Little Rock! This year, as we continue celebrating 90 years of lasting community impact and look forward to the next 90 years, we continue our legacy of civic leadership and service.
As an organization of more than 1,200 women who contribute their time, talent, and energy to issues affecting the Little Rock community, we annually invest more than 47,667 volunteer hours, estimated at a worth of $1.5 million dollars. With the support of various community and business partners, volunteer hours, and fundraising dollars, we have an undeniable impact on Little Rock.
This legacy has endowed the Little Rock community with numerous organizations and projects: the Baby Welfare Station, Visiting Nurses Association, Speech Correction School, Arkansas Arts Center, Gaines House, Volunteers in Public Schools, Riverfest, the Parent Center, KATV’s “Seven on Your Side,” and Potluck, just to name a few.
During the 2012-13 League year, we will enhance member training, build coalitions to expand the impact of our community projects, advocate publically for our focus areas, and launch a branding campaign to invite others to LEARN WHAT WE DO. All this will happen as we continue our ongoing work with community partners and placements, carry out fundraising efforts, and develop our members.
We look forward to working with everyone, member and partner alike, as we fulfill our mission of developing women into lifelong community leaders.
