Junior League of Greenwich Celebrates 60 Years of Community Impact
It has been said many times that if you live or work in Greenwich, chances are you or someone in your family has felt the effect of a project of the Junior League of Greenwich (JLG). This year, the JLG is celebrating 60 years of impacting the lives of countless Greenwich residents through the design and creation of programs and projects addressing critical community needs. Over the last six decades, the JLG has taken on bricks-and-mortar projects like Kids In Crisis, the daycare center at the Children’s Day School, Greenwich Skatepark, Boundless Playground at Bruce Park and most recently the Greenwich Pool in Byram Park. Projects addressing the environment, parent education, domestic violence, AIDS awareness and affordable housing were conceived, initiated and implemented by the Junior League, as were community mainstays like YES (Youth Employment Service at Greenwich High School), the Den for Grieving Kids and Safety Town.
The JLG was chartered on February 22, 1959 and has continuously served the Greenwich community for 60 years. The Junior League of Greenwich trains its volunteers to research and identify community needs. Through the funds it raises, it initiates programs that meet these needs and then works in partnership with other civic organizations and agencies to implement solutions. The JLG typically administers projects for approximately 2 to 10 years, usually turning them over to an existing agency or organization, but some projects become independent entities.
