In keeping with our Mission, each year the Junior League of Augusta, Georgia (JLA) provides volunteer resources and funding to nonprofit agencies in the Augusta community through a variety of avenues. JLA is committed to providing community support, both short and long term, through its trained volunteers and efforts. Additionally, JLA has a long history of working with local, regional and state governments to advocate policies directly affecting our community focus.
All JLA projects and partnerships align with supporting women and children at risk with the primary focus on generational poverty.
