Community Impact

In 2013, the Junior League of the Lehigh Valley adopted a new impact strategy focusing on reducing educational disparity among children in the Lehigh Valley. Through member surveys, community needs assessments, and interviews with community leaders, the League identified an opportunity to make a sustainable difference in this area.

Through a variety of volunteer, funding and advocacy actions, JLLV initiatives primarily focus on improving life skills and decreasing the education gap, addressing Summer Slide in students’ academic skills while they are out of school, Pre-K Readiness, Food Access, and Life Skills Education.
