Community Impact

Consistent with its Position Statements and with its Mission, Vision, and Purpose Statements, the Junior League of Jackson endorses an Issue-Based 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:

Our three impact areas point to one common goal: increasing the high school graduation rate through addressing the issues of improving school readiness and improving student quality of life. By focusing our efforts in these three key impact areas, the League can help make a meaningful and measurable difference in the lives of those we serve.
