Community Impact

The JLMC empowers young girls to become confident women through a four-pronged approach:  

  • Direct ServiceHands-on activities, such as Kids in the Kitchen and Girls on the Run, will provide young women opportunities to work directly with trained volunteers.

  • Indirect ServiceSupplementary support services such as food and financial drives and updating physical spaces promote increased opportunities to meet the needs of young women through Done in a Day projects.

  • Capacity Building:Our commitment to capacity building increases the overall awareness of the issue and creates a common ground for all in the community to work together.  This is conducted through speakers, trainings, and convening panels of local leaders and organizations.

  • Advocacy:The JLMC aids in building coalitions, researching, and organizing effective plans through our advocacy and leadership development.

G.I.R.L.S. Leadership Summit*

 G.I.R.L.S. (Girls Institute for Responsible Leadership Skills) will be a two-day professionally facilitated workshop for at risk girls in grades 3-5.  The purpose of the Summit is to engage a diverse group of young women in our county in a meaningful dialogue that will:  1.) expand their developmental assets, 2.)cultivate their leadership skills, and 3.) empower them to make a difference in their community through civic engagement and the creation of a community project.  At the end of the two-day Summit, the girls will have identified their personal strengths and defined the focus area on which their community project will be based. 

Kids in the Kitchen

A program initiated by the Associations of JL International that the vast majority of the 397 Junior Leagues across 4 countries participate in, will be hosted at the Sisters Academy this spring.  Children’s health and wellness has been a key issue for Junior Leagues since our founding in 1901.  Today, a critical element of our ongoing commitment is teaching kids and their parents about the importance of eating healthy foods and involving them in the fight against childhood obesity.  (Started in 2006 – past partners we have worked with include: the Boys and Girls Clubs – both Red Bank & Asbury Park, the Community YMCA in Red Bank, Red Bank Primary School and the Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore)
