Through Community Partnerships, the League solicits applications from interested area nonprofits each spring and selects two to three to partner with each year. This allows us to leverage our resources more effectively and efficiently, as all financial and volunteer assistance is focused solely on these organizations for the year. Organizations are chosen because of their work aligning with the mission of the JLL.
Please contact the Community Vice President with inquiries: communityvp@jrleaguelynchburg.
The Junior League of Lynchburg selected the following three local organizations with which to partner for the 2019-2020 year:
The Listening (TL)
The Listening’s mission is to engage, change and save lives with the performing arts through community engagement and youth mentoring. The Listening has a bold vision to see our community changed by socially minded artists who have a burden to use their talent, time, and passion to change the world around them, as well as the world inside of them. They believe that the road towards a better tomorrow is best accomplished passionately, creatively, and intentionally – together.
Park View Community Mission (PV)
Founded in 1996, Park View Community Mission is dedicated to providing help, healing and hope to the vulnerable neighbors in the community, many of whom live in poverty. Park View Community Missions seeks to restore the lives of families and our community, by building relationships and by equipping these neighbors with life-changing skills and resources.
The YWCA of Central Virginia (YWCA)
YWCA of Central Virginia has been an integral part of this community since 1912, with a long- standing and intentional focus on empowering women. YWCA is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all. This mission drives their key direct service programs: the Domestic Violence Prevention Program (DVPP); the Sexual Assault Response Program (SARP); and the Town Center Women’s Residential Housing Program.
