POSITION STATEMENT ON CHILDREN AND YOUTH: The Junior League of Jackson is committed to supporting appropriate services and opportunities to provide better health, education, welfare, and safety for all children and youth.
COMMUNITY IMPACT: Consistent with its Position Statements and with its Mission, Vision and Purpose Statements, the Junior League of Jackson endorses a Community Impact Model for the selection and evaluation of its community projects. This model requires the League to identify a small number of critical community needs, and to place its volunteers and project funds exclusively or primarily in those areas, in order to maximize the League’s effectiveness in improving the community.
The League has identified the following community needs: early literacy, teenage pregnancy, nutrition, physical activity, and social and emotional wellness.
