As the Junior League of Syracuse (JLS) approaches 100 years of building a better Syracuse community, support from members continues be vitally important in allowing the JLS to accomplish our mission. During the 2018-2019 League year, your membership support helped provide:
- 18 community impact experiences where members engage with our community partners, including the JLS’ new collaboration with Chadwick Residence to support homeless women and children; the third annual Valentine’s Tea Party in partnership with the YWCA and My Sister’s Closet; and the JLS’ annual STEM Expo in collaboration with Danforth Middle School, impacting 60 6th grade young women annually, and now in its seventh year.
- 22 member development opportunities, including October’s Salt City Summit featuring three sessions with noted trainer and facilitator Vicki Clark.
A selection of photos from these opportunities is below for viewing by our members, with thanks for your continued support!
