Community Events

The Junior League of Richmond also hosts an array of public events that serve to enhance community while also generating funding for our ongoing volunteer work in the Richmond area.  These programs include:
Book & Author Dinner - the oldest event of its kind, the Book & Author Dinner features a diverse panel of writers who discuss their new books with a Richmond audience of more than 1,000.  Guest authors also make presentations in area schools.
Touch a Truck - A unique interactive one-day event which allows children to see, touch, and explore their favorite big trucks and vehicles and meet the personnel who protect, build, and serve the Richmond community.

Population(s) Served

This program presents a program once a month to young women (target age 16-25) from local high schools and community colleges to share information about resume writing, career exploration, networking, and developing skills for employment.

Population(s) Served
Young adults

This program partners with Shalom Farms and the YWCA to connect women served by the YWCA with locally-grown produce, food boxes with nutritious ingredients, recipes, and essential kitchen tools and supplies.

Population(s) Served

This program connects with community partners to plan single day and ongoing short projects, in order to offer service and engagement with the Richmond area. Committee may also have one-to-two subcommittees that work directly with specific community partners on long-term and/or monthly programs, such as Kids in the Kitchen.

Population(s) Served

This program collaborates with Peter Paul Development Center, Richmond and Henrico Public Schools, and neighborhood community centers to host several reading carnivals for families. The purpose of the carnivals is to increase literacy proficiency for caregivers, encourage family connectedness through shared reading, provide topical information and access to resources, and provide a book for each family served. Each reading carnival will feature various activity stations, centered around books and reading, and will be held at community centers close to various Richmond Courts.

Population(s) Served
Children
Preteens

This committee works in conjunction with REAL LIFE to connect with women in the greater Richmond community who need female comradery, education around infant and child care, and a support network as they navigate the transition from incarceration, addiction issues, housing insecurity, and/or poverty. This program will help to empower underserved women and provide resources, education, and conversation around topics that are most applicable.

Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Improve the lives of underserved communities in the Greater Richmond area. Provide training for women volunteers.

We offer a curriculum of training courses for our members and opportunities for trained volunteers to impact the local community through our own programs and partnerships with other organizations.

Our active membership is 400+. Our sustaining membership also participates in community service.

Our most successful programs have been Kids in the Kitchen, Good Sports, and Literacy Through Art Outreach. Our attempts at one-on-one mentoring have been more of a struggle due to logistics and participation.
