The Junior League of Augusta, Georgia, Inc. is committed to combating the generational poverty of women and children throughout the CSRA. Our newest initiative to achieve this goal is the implementation of our Foundations program. In partnership with Icebox Ministries and Georgia Organics, the Junior League of Augusta has created a series of five workshops designed to equip women with the tools necessary to break the cycle of poverty.
Each workshop, consisting of two-hours, will provide useful and practical information to assist women to transition from assistance programs to self-sufficiency, improving their day-to-day lives. Specifically, these workshops will address topics including job skills, home management, financial literacy and family planning. In addition to these topics, class participants will learn how to prepare a healthy, budget friendly meal at the beginning of each class.
Our signature program will begin on March 15, 2018 with a required commitment to attend classes March 15, March 29, April 19, May 3 and May 17. Classes will be held at the Icebox Ministries campus in Harrisburg so participants living in the area can easily attend all five classes. Upon completion of the program there will be a course wrap-up and celebration on May 31, 2018, including a presentation of the kitchen utensils used during the meal preparation for each participant.
If you know someone who might benefit from this series of workshops or if you yourself would like to participate, please contact the Junior League of Augusta Foundations Committee at Foundations@JLAugusta.org.
