Message from the President
In 2013-2014, the members of the Junior League of Little Rock (JLLR) will do more than just LIVE in Little Rock. We will work to BUILD a better city. We will ENRICH the lives of those women and
children we SERVE. We will be WOMEN IN MOTION.
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, to name a few.
This League year marks JLLR’s 92nd year of service in Little Rock. As we move toward our 100th year, we, as WOMEN IN MOTION, will move to execute the new ten-year strategic plan.
- Decrease childhood obesity in our community, by
increasing access to healthy foods and opportunities for physical activity.
- Improve literacy skills among Pulaski County third
graders by narrowing the readiness gap.
- Secure our financial future through the growth of investments, endowments
and sustainable fund development.
- Establish the JLLR as the premier source of female leadership development
in Little Rock.
We, as an organization, have taken on significant challenges and have our work cut out for us, but we, as WOMEN IN MOTION, are armed with the knowledge and skills to succeed. As we always have, we will do more than merely call Little Rock home. We will BUILD, ENRICH, and SERVE this great city.
