Junior League of Cleveland Scholarship Fund
The Junior League of Cleveland Scholarship Fund provides support for non-traditional women students seeking the opportunity to gain further education or career training. Awards of up to $5000 can be used for traditional expenses such as tuition as well as transportation costs, supplies, and child care.
Immediate Impact (Done in a Day)
Immediate Impact projects are designed to provide League members with a wide variety of volunteer opportunities that do not require an extensive ongoing time commitment. This year, we will have volunteer opportunities with the Greater Cleveland Food Bank, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Cleveland, Cuyahoga County Department of Children and Family Services, the Kids Book Bank and University Settlement.
The Advocacy Committee is tasked with educating League Members and the community at large regarding issues surrounding our issue impact area and with supporting the advocacy efforts of The Association of Junior Leagues International (AJLI). The Advocacy Committee also lobbies local, state, and federal lawmakers regarding our policy positions. This year, our efforts will be focused on easing the transition experienced by youth aging out of foster care. More information about AJLI advocacy initiatives can be found at www.ajli.org.
