The Safe Rides Program is designed to save the lives of teens that may be in a vulnerable position by being in need of a safe form of transportation home. It is run by a partnership between the Greenwich Youth Services Coordinator and the First Selectman’s Youth Commission, with support from the Greenwich Police Department.
Keeping with the mission of the JLG in promoting women in the community, on January 14, 2015, the Junior League of Greenwich Done in a Day-Night Committee partnered with Kempo Academy of Martial Arts and Equinox to offer a Self-Defense course to women ages 15 years and up in the community.
Members of the community had the opportunity to hear from a panel of experts from the NBA and NFL on the prevention of adolescent sports injuries, moderated by NBA All-Star Allan Houston.
The Junior League lauched its newest program, Positively More, in November. The progam focuses on 11 and 12 year-old girls and aims to give them the tools they need to avoid questionable situations, lessen the consequences of conflicts, and identify lessons learned by challenges, with the help of both professionals and Teen Ambassadors.
The 38th year of The Enchanted Forest, November 21st - 23rd at the Hyatt Regency Greenwich was a success! Thank you to all members of the community that supported this holiday event, which helps the Junior League of Greenwich support all of our projects.
